Footage shows Thornham Parva man's rescue from bog

Thermal imaging footage has been released of a man who was rescued after being stuck in a muddy bog for nearly seven hours while on a walk with his dog.

Martin Kay, 67, had taken a different route from usual across fields near his home in Suffolk.

He had gone out at about 14:30 GMT on 18 January in Thornham Parva, near Eye, and was reported missing at 19:30.

The police helicopter was used in the subsequent search and footage from a thermal camera shows his dog Holly was sitting with him when help arrived.

Mr Kay has met his rescuers at Wattisham airfield, where the helicopter is based, to say thank you.
