A man arrested as part of an investigation into the theft of nearly £1.2m from a security van in Suffolk 20 years ago has been released on bail.

The 54-year-old man, from Woodford Green, east London, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit theft.

He is to report to Suffolk Police on 27 February.

Eddie Maher, 57, denies stealing the money from a security van outside Lloyds Bank, in Felixstowe, in 1993.

Mr Maher's partner, Deborah Brett, 47, and sister, Margaret Francis, 64, have also been arrested and bailed as part of the inquiry.

Mr Maher, formerly of South Woodham Ferrers, in Essex, was arrested in Missouri in the US in February and returned to the UK in July.
