Thames Coastguard said a commercial vessel spotted a white flashing light in the sea around 40 miles east of Felixstowe.

It was feared the light was either a life raft or a person with a life jacket in the water.

Coastguard were alerted around 5.22am and dispatched a lifeboat crew from Harwich to investigate. They searched the area but nothing was found.
