A 46-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the body of a woman was found in water at a country park in Suffolk.

Police were alerted by ambulance services that the body had been found at Brandon Country Park shortly before 7am on Friday.

The suspect was arrested at around 12:15pm, Suffolk Police say, and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where he remains.

Brandon Country Park has been closed while a police investigation is carried out.

Detectives are said to be treating the woman’s death as an isolated incident.

Superintendent Andy Smith said that police suspect that those involved were known to each other.

“The investigation is still in its early stages but we suspect that the parties involved are known to each other, with no wider threat to the community,” he said.

“We understand this will have shocked and alarmed many people but officers will remain at the scene over the coming days and extra patrols are taking place to provide reassurance.

“We would like to thank local residents who have so far assisted us with this investigation.”
