A piece of paper was put through a letterbox and set alight during a suspected arson attack in Sudbury, police say. 

It took place at about 3.30am on Sunday, January 30, at a property in Church Walk. 

A spokesman for Suffolk police said: "An offender gained entry into a block of flats and placed paper through the victim’s letter box and set fire to it.

"This triggered a smoke alarm with the victim finding burnt paper in the letter box and on his floor in the hall with the remnants on the floor outside his front door."
