Information wanted after attempted rail cable theft

Detectives are appealing for information after an attempted theft of rail cable near Bury St. Edmunds.

More than seventy metres of cable was found to have been cut, but not taken, close to Elmswell Station on Wednesday.

A grey Mitsubishi Shogun was seen abandoned near the scene two days earlier, which police say could have been used to access the line.

Although train services were not disrupted, investigators want to speak to anybody who may have seen anything suspicious to help them trace the offenders.
