Another neighbour later heard one of the guests moaning and crying in the street.

"It sounded like 'why have you done this to me'," the resident said. "But most of it was unintelligible."

The Victorian terraced house is divided into several rooms which are then let out using online hotel and short stay websites.

The owner of the property, Oliver Lines, does not live at the house and depends on a keypad to allow guests to access the rooms.

Police have been called to reports of disturbances at the B&B rental in the past.

Suffolk Police have been contacted for comment.
