Two people have been rescued by the coastguard after a dinghy they were travelling in got stuck in the mud on the River Alde.
Teams from the Felixstowe, Aldeburgh and Shingle Street coastguard rescue teams were called to the scene near Iken shortly after 9.30pm Friday, May 29.
The Aldeburgh RNLI and four appliances from the Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were also called out.
On arrival, two mud techs from the Shingle Street Coastguard Rescue Team made their way out onto the mud, where they put the two casualties onto stretchers.
