A man died after falling from the Orwell Bridge near Ipswich yesterday.
A rescue helicopter from RAF Wattisham and coastguard teams were sent to the scene at about 11.25am yesterday after a police officer reported seeing someone climbing on to the parapet before “going out of view”.
The body was located by the Holbrook coastguard team.
The man was then airlifted to hospital but it is understood that he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Details of the incident have just been released but a spokeswoman for Suffolk police said: “The matter will now be referred to the coroner and no further details will be released.”
