A person was stuck on board a dinghy after it became stuck in an east Suffolk river. 

Firefighters were called to the River Deben in Woodbridge at about 10.50pm on Thursday after reports that a dinghy was stranded in mud. 

The boat became stuck after the tide went out, a Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said. 

One person is on board the dinghy, but does not appear to be in distress. 

A spokesman for HM Coastguard said: “HM Coastguard responded to a dinghy with one person on board stuck on mud by the River Deben on 13 June.

"Coastguard Rescue Teams were sent from Felixstowe, Holbrook and Shingle Street. 

"The person on board is safe and well. Regular welfare checks will be made until the dinghy refloats on the tide.”
