FIREFIGHTERS were called to Gressingham Foods in Redgrave this morning to rescue a woman who had her hand trapped in machinery.

The woman, believed to be 50-years-old, was freed by fire crews using holmatro cutting gear after they received a call at 8.27am.

One appliance from Diss and one from Eye attended the scene along with an ambulance, a rapid response car, and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
