A man has been taken to hospital after getting trapped in the hull of a canal boat.
The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) were called to Boundary Road, Great Yarmouth at 1.21pm to help a man, believed to be in his 60s, who got stuck in the vessel.
Firefighters from Great Yarmouth and Gorleston stations were called half an hour later and assisted with removing a person who was initially though to have fallen through a loft floor.
With help from the fire and rescue service, the crews managed to free the man and provide treatment for the neck and back injuries suffered in the fall. He was taken to the James Paget Hospital for further care.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: 'Thankfully his condition isn't thought to be serious and we wish him the very best for his recovery.'
