An Ipswich road has reopened after police shut it for nearly an hour today in connection with an ongoing murder trial.

Suffolk police warned the public that Ancaster Road would closed from 11.30am for between 45 minutes to an hour as part of the trial held following the alleged murder of Dean Stansby.

At 12.25pm, Suffolk police confirmed the road had reopened.

“Police would like to thank members of the public for their patience with this,” a police spokesman added.

Local diversions were in place during the road closure.
