Three men have been charged with Class A drug offences after police received reports of an illegal rave being organised in Rendlesham Forest.

The trio were among six people arrested on suspicion of drug offences when officers stopped two cars in Bromeswell, near Woodbridge on December 12 last year.

The three men who have been charged are accused of various offences involving cocaine, LSD, cannabis and ecstasy.

Anne-Marie Breach, a spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary, said Jonathan Bichard, of Blenheim Crescent, Thetford, has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to supply and possession of MDMA (ecstasy).

The 35-year-old is also accused of driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence and having no vehicle insurance.
