A glider pilot had a lucky escape yesterday after having to make an emergency landing in Cockfield near Lavenham.

Suffolk police tweeted a photo of the pilot and his glider yesterday afternoon after he was forced to land in a field after veering off course from his desired destination of Peterborough - more than 60 miles away.

They reported he had successfully made the landing and is said to be safe and well.

The tweet reads: “A glider pilot made an emergency landing in Cockfield miles from his desired destination in Peterborough. “It landed the perfect photo opportunity for officers with the pilot being safe and well.”
