Part of the estate is social housing, run by Saffron Housing Trust.

A resident on the new estate, that has lived there for two years, said: "We see the odd police car sometimes but that's normal for any estate.

"There were lots of police cars that all gathered here on Friday afternoon which we thought was weird. We knew something was wrong when we saw a small ambulance and forensic vans.

"Nothing like this usually happens around here, it's a first."
