A West Suffolk Council spokesman, who manage the park, said: “Brandon County Park has been closed temporarily following a request from the Police after the body of Egle Vengaliene was found on the site.  

“Our thoughts are with her, her family and friends. A Police investigation is ongoing and therefore it would not be right for us to comment further.” 

A 46-year-old man was arrested and remains in custody, after police applied to Ipswich Magistrates' Court for additional time to question him. 

The suspect continues to be questioned and house-to-house enquiries are now taking place.
