A drone was used to find the dazed occupant of an overturned car on Saturday.

Ministry of Defence police spotted the barely visible car in a ditch on the A1106 at Elveden at about 4.45am.

Suffolk Police found one of the occupants, a 24-year-old man, nearby but the other had wandered off.

After a ground search, a drone shared by Suffolk police and fire was called in and a 31-year-old man was found in woodland several hours later.

Both were treated for minor injuries at West Suffolk Hospital.
