Man saved from the river

The Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has confirmed that crews have rescued a man who fell into the river near Wincolmlee's Chapman Street Bridge.

The fire department was called in at 5:55 pm and sent three engines to launch the Beverley boat crew.

A spokesman said, "We rescued a man with inflatable sledges from the water with two involved firefighters.

"The man had managed to hold himself close to a barge, so there was a danger he would run down the river.
