Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of immigration offences after police were called to reports of people exiting a van at a farm machinery dealership in Framlingham.

Officers were called to Ernest Doe Power in Broadwater Road, Framlingham, at 8am yesterday.

Police said a 17-year-old man and an 18-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of immigration offences and taken to Martlesham police investigation centre.

The case was handed over to immigration officers. A Home Office Immigration Enforcement spokesman said: “Two Eritrean nationals were arrested on suspicion of immigration offences. One, who claims to be under 18, was passed to the care of social services where he will be age assessed. The other has been transferred to immigration detention.”

Police said the arrests were not linked to the detention of 10 men on the A14 at Newmarket at 10.10am this morning.
