Rescuers free woman from mud

A woman was rescued today after she found herself stuck in deep mud in a wood.

A TEENAGER had to be rescued from a wood today after she found herself stuck in mud up to her hips.

A search was launched by Suffolk police after they received a call from the 17-year-old on her mobile phone at about 4.25pm who said she was stuck and couldn't be seen by the nearby road.

A search was launched by police who were assisted by fire crews and an RAF helicopter.

A spokesman for Suffolk Police said: “We were very concerned initially because she told us she was near the shore line and the tide would have been coming in shortly and the signal on her mobile phone had gone.”
