A woman in her 80s became stuck in a drainage ditch in Oakley on Saturday.

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service was alerted to Upper Street at 4.04pm, sending four vehicles to the scene.

A spokesperson said the woman had been stuck up to her knees for an hour-and-a-half before contacting emergency services.

She was freed by the water rescue team, who used a mud lance to release her.

The East of England Ambulance Service dispatched a rapid response vehicle and, after helping the patient from the mud, discharged them at the scene with no injuries of note.
