A 42-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of illegal money lending has been released under investigation. 

The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT), as well as Suffolk police, carried out a raid in the Woodbridge area on Tuesday. 

Electronic devices and paperwork were seized during the operation. 

The suspect was taken into custody for questioning, but has since been released under investigation.

Tony Quigley, head of the IMLT, said of the arrest: “We would like to thank our partners for working with us on this operation and inquiries will continue.

“We would urge anyone who has any knowledge about illegal money lending in any area across England to get in touch with us.

"We realise it might be a difficult step for some people, but our officers are here to help, not to judge. People can contact us in confidence, 24 hours a day.”
