A man has been released on bail after being arrested in connection with an incident in Aldeburgh which left a woman fighting for her life.

Suffolk police were called to a property in St Paul’s Close at around 8.45am on Wednesday by the ambulance service after a 47-year-old woman had collapsed.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called and landed on Aldeburgh beach, before airlifting the woman to Ipswich Hosptial - where she remains in a critical condition.

Police subsequently arrested a 55-year-old man on suspicion of actual bodily harm. He was taken to Martlesham police headquarters for questioning.

However, he was then further arrested on suspicion of coercive and controlling behaviour.
