An “unbelievably loud bang” woke up residents across Suffolk this morning, prompting questions over its origin.
The noise was heard by a number of people in towns and villages across the east of the county shortly after 6.30am today.
Residents in Framlingham, Kettleburgh and Saxmundham have all reported hearing the mysterious bang, which sounded “like an explosion”.
One dog walker said the noise scared her dog so much it was left shaking.
Another person described the noise as “unbelievably loud” and said it made his house shake.
