A man has sadly died following a cliff collapse in Thorpeness in Suffolk.

Suffolk Police were called by the Ambulance service at 1.25pm today (Saturday 14 January), following reports of a man trapped after part of a cliff collapsed onto the beach at Thorpeness.

A rescue operation involving Police, Fire, Ambulance and the Coastguard commenced in order to locate and free the man, believed to be in his late 50s, who was trapped.

Despite the efforts of those at the scene, the man was located but had sadly died. Police are treating the death as non-suspicious and will prepare a file for the coroner.
