Teenager injured after falling into deep pit

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the pit in Southwold Road, Holton, near Halesworth, shortly before 8pm last night (Thursday).
The 15-year-old boy had fallen from a tree swing, which was above a 15-foot gravel pit, which is believed to have led to him suffering a back injury.

The boy was taken from the pit using a stretcher and taken to hospital by ambulance.
