Seven suspected illegal immigrants have been detained after a yacht ran aground in Suffolk.

UK Border Force officers were called after the group of Ukrainian nationals was discovered in Orford on Sunday morning.

The Coastguard was called out when the yacht found itself in trouble in high winds.

It is thought to be the second time in recent years that a group of Ukrainians has been detained at the port.
