A woman is believed to have suffered minor injuries after falling from her mobility scooter on a coastal path.

Firefighters from Lowestoft, HM Coastguard rescue officers from Lowestoft and Southwold and the East of England Ambulance Service were called out about 11.30am today (Saturday) following reports that the woman had been injured after coming off her mobility scooter near Pakefield cliffs.

With seven coastguard rescue officers from Lowestoft and Southwold attending the scene, a spokesman said: 'The team was alerted by Humber Coastguard to assist the ambulance service in recovering a woman – believed to be in her 60s – who had fallen from her mobility scooter.

'The scooter had gone off the path, and fallen down the cliff edge a short distance, close to the war memorial in the Pakefield Church area.'

The coastguard rescue officers and firefighters quickly helped to recover the woman, and she was taken into the awaiting ambulance.
