The Wells lifeboat has towed a yacht that ran out of fuel back to safety.
The coastguard was called at 11.56pm after the vessel, Yacht Blue, got into difficulty about 10 miles north of Blakeney Point.
It had been travelling from Grimsby to Lowestoft.
The lifeboat launched at 12.24am, and arrived back in Wells at 3.56am.
A spokesman for the coastguard said two people were on the yacht, and there were no casualties.
