A man has been taken to hospital with 'minor injuries' following an incident in Thetford yesterday evening.
Police, fire and ambulance crews were scrambled to Monksgate shortly after 8.40pm to reports of a man in the river.
An air ambulance was also dispatched to the scene following fears that a second person was in the water.
A police spokesman said by the time officers arrived, the man was out of the river and was 'soaking wet'.
He had suffered 'minor injuries' and was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
