Armed police raided an Ipswich house after a man was seen with what was believed to be a firearm.

The incident happened at around 8pm on November 7 with residents reporting a huge police presence at a property on Tern Road.

One resident said she saw three police cars, a dog unit and two armed police vans in attendance.

A search on the property was carried out but no firearm was discovered.

A 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm and he was taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

He has subsequently been released and will face no further action.
