A lifeboat was launched off the Suffolk coast amid concerns that a windsurfer had failed to return to shore.

The Aldeburgh lifeboat crew responded to reports of a possible missing windsurfer at 7.52pm.

A Thames Coastguard spokesman said the alarm was raised following a call reporting an “overdue windsurfer”.

In spite of initial reports, nothing was found and the crew from Aldeburgh was stood down and returned to shore.
