Lifeboat crew helps rescue people cut off by tide at Brancaster
Lifeboat crews were called out tonight to help rescue two people who had become cut off by the tide at Brancaster.
The Hunstanton lifeboat was launched at 6.55pm to go to the aid of two people cut off by the incoming tide at Scolt Head Island, Brancaster.
The Hunstanton volunteer crew arrived on scene and picked the people, who were believed to be on holiday from Derby, and took them to Brancaster harbour. Neither needed medical attention.
Meanwhile, in an earlier incident the Wells inshore lifeboat was launched at 5.40pm after coastguards received a call to assist an 18ft yacht Amadeus which suffered engine failure at the entrance to Blakeney Harbour.
The inshore lifeboat, which was later joined by the all weather lifeboat, reached the yacht at 6pm when a crewman went onboard before the stricken vessel was towed back to Blakeney, reaching Morston Quay at just after 6.40pm.
