Lifeboat crews from Mundesely and Sheringham are helping a fishing boat return to safety this evening.

The vessel, with two people on board, is being towed to Wells harbour by Sheringham lifeboat, which took over from the Mundesley crew at Cromer.

The boat, which was travelling from Lowestoft to Wells, is believed to have a flat battery.

A spokesman for Sheringham Lifeboat said the journey was about 17 miles and they expected to arrive off Wells at about 10pm.

Sheringham lifeboat launched at 7.06pm.
