A man has been bailed following a robbery in Suffolk which left a mother and daughter seriously hurt.

Two people forced their way into a house in Cambridge Road, Lowestoft, early on Monday, assaulted the two women, and stole cash and jewellery.

A 36-year-old man was arrested later that day on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery and has now been bailed.

Another man, aged 30, was still being questioned on suspicion of attempted murder.

Suffolk Police were called to the scene when a member of the public heard shouts coming from the property.

During the robbery, the elder woman - aged 47 - had suffered life-threatening injuries including a fractured skull.

She was being treated at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge where her condition has been described as "serious but stable".

Her 28-year-old daughter was left with head injuries and a broken arm.

The man arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery was due to answer bail on 25 October, said police.

A spokesperson said police were not treating the case as a random attack.
