Suffolk to lose air sea rescue base

The region is to lose its only air sea rescue base as part of a radical reshuffle of the service.

The base at Wattisham in Suffolk has been home to 2 RAF Sea King helicopters covering the East coast.

Now the private firm Bristow is to take over the service from the armed forces, and the Wattisham operation will move to Manston in Kent.
