Emergency services were called to the eastern edge of Ipswich after somebody died suddenly in public.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said they were called at 7.22am to Woodbridge Road East, near Playford Road, to a sudden death in the area of the public highway.

It is believed the person died as a result of a medical episode, rather than a road traffic collision. Police are not revealing any more details about them at this stage.

The road was closed to allow for emergency services to work at the scene, but it is now open.
