At around 5.30am on Tuesday Suffolk police received a call from a member of the public from the London Road area of Kessingland. He had been woken by the sound of voices and saw a neighbour’s caravan hooked up to a camper van being driven from the scene.

Officers attended but as they were approaching the vehicles at Ellough they were driven on to the airfield, abandoned and the occupants fled.

A search was made but the offenders were not found It is thought a maroon/red Peugeot 307 was travelling with the camper van and caravan and that this may have been used to take the offenders from the airfield.
