A man’s been rescued from the river in Colchester.
He was found clinging to reeds in the Colne yesterday afternoon near Riverside Place.
The casualty was left in the care of the Ambulance Service.
Station Commander Lee Palfreyman told Radio Essex: “We found the man clinging onto reeds in extremely cold water.
“Crews did a brilliant job putting their training into practice. They quickly got a line around him and pulled him to safety.”
