Three men aged 18, 22 and 24 who were arrested following damage caused at Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds have been bailed until later this month.

The men were arrested on Moreton Hall in Bury St Edmunds yesterday by police following a number of calls from members of the public suggesting people were smashing car windscreens and letting off smoke bombs in Daisy Avenue in the early hours of the morning.

A total of 13 vehicles are thought to have been vandalised following the incidents with thousands of pounds worth of damage caused.

Police found air weapons, component parts and ammunition in the men’s possession.

A police spokesman said: “The males were interviewed at Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre and were all bailed with conditions to return on the 19 October 2018.”
