JUST a few hours after rescuing 11 people from a dive boat, the crew of Lowestoft Lifeboat was called out once more.

The volunteer RNLI crew responded to reports of a yacht that had ran aground on a sandbank “more or less opposite” the CEFAS building in south Lowestoft.

A lifeboat spokesman said: “We were called out about 5pm to reports that a yacht, with two people on board, had ran aground. The yacht had damaged its rudder on the sandbank and had to be towed into harbour by Lowestoft Lifeboat, arriving at about 6.25pm.”

  • If you think that why don't you volunteer and sign up to the crew, or is it too run of the mil for you?
