A man is being questioned by police after a disturbance at an RAF base during which shots were fired by US service personnel. … Superintendent Kim Warner, of Suffolk Police, said a vehicle failed to follow security directions at the entrance and drove on to the base.
There was a “short pursuit” and the vehicle was stopped by US security services, he said.
The man, who suffered cuts and bruises, has been taken into custody and police are not looking for anyone else on the site in relation to the incident.
There were initial reports of a car being rammed into a checkpoint, but Mr Warner said he was “unaware of any damage to the base itself”.
He said the vehicle was brought to a halt close to a US plane, an Osprey, and it was not thought there was “any significant damage” to the vehicle or the aircraft.
This is reportedly not being treated as a terrorist incident. Read the whole thing.
