A man has been rescued after he was seen in difficulties while surfing this afternoon.
Felixstowe Coastguard and the Harwich Onshore Lifeboat were tasked to the entrance to the River Deben at 1.05pm.
A member of the public had reported seeing a man in difficulties while surfing.
A spokesman for Thames Coastguard said the lifeboat found the 38-year-old man who was “exhausted”.
He said he had been lucky as the surfer’s sail and mast had broken off because of the stormy conditions.
