Next, a man has died after falling from a bridge in Haverhill last night.

Police were called at around 8pm to reports of a concern for safety for a man who was sat on a high wall that crosses Ehringshausen Way in the town.

The man left the scene after speaking to officers but at 9.30pm they were called by the ambulance service reporting a male, aged in his late 40s, had sustained serious injuries after a fall from a high bridge in the Hamlet Road area.

A police cordon was put in place and the man was confirmed as the same person involved in the earlier incident. He was pronounced dead a short while later.
