A busy night for the Great Yarmouth coastguard

The Great Yarmouth coastguard had a busy night last with three rescue missions in Norfolk.

At 10.30pm a 20ft inflatable boat was found abandoned on the boat ramp at Hunstanton.

A helicopter went searching for anyone who may have been on board between Skegness to Weybourne.

Skiing equipment and a bag of apples was on found on the boat.

No one was found which the coastguard team have described as a mystery, and they now say they are not searching for anyone unless they get further information.
