A man has been arrested after apparently trying to drive through a checkpoint at a base used by the US air force in Suffolk.

RAF Mildenhall was put into lockdown as police responded to reports of what they called a "significant incident".

A person was arrested and is now in the custody of Suffolk Police.

A US military statement said the base was locked down at 13:00 GMT "following reports of a disturbance" and emergency personnel were deployed.
