Ipswich: Man dislocates knee in boat fall

A man suffered a dislocated knee after falling on to a boat gantry at an Ipswich marina.

Fire crews and paramedics were called to Foxes Marina in The Strand, Wherstead, at 12.41pm yesterday.

Three fire engines were called after a 40-year-old man fell on to the gantry of a boat which was moored in a dry dock.

The boat was 20 feet above ground level so fire crews used a turn table ladder to help rescue him.

The man was treated by paramedics at the scene for a dislocated knee. Fire crews stood down from the scene shortly after 1pm.
