Suffolk police and East Suffolk Council staff attended the Grove Road car park in Felixstowe, near the Grove woodland area, on Tuesday afternoon.

Two men, aged 21 and 29, were arrested on suspicion of theft from a motor vehicle on Wednesday after a chainsaw was stolen from a Renault Master van in Maidstone Road the previous Saturday.

The pair were taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where they remain.

A search was conducted at the car park and stolen property, including power tools, a battery power pack and an air pistol, were recovered from a caravan.
