Hunstanton RNLI Lifeboat crew was called when a kite surfer was spotted in trouble off Old Hunstanton this morning (Monday).

Just as the lifeboat was about to enter the water at 11.45am, the kite surfer was reported to be safely ashore.

It was feared the lifeboat would be called out again if the kite was seen out alone at sea, so the crew recovered it before returning to base.

On Saturday, the mother of four young children aged between 11 and 15 dialled 999 to report the youngsters in trouble near the boat house.

Again, as the crew was preparing to launch at about 5pm, the children were reported safe and well.
