Police officers got a close-up look at a glider yesterday after the pilot had to make an emergency landing in a stubble field at Cockfield.

Suffolk Police tweeted a picture of the officers with the glider and pilot saying: "A glider pilot made an emergency landing in Cockfield miles from his desired destination in Peterborough.

"It landed the perfect photo opportunity for officers with the pilot being safe and well."

The glider, built in Serbia in 1984, is registered to a man from Great Baddow near Chelmsford.
