Mundesley lifeboat save woman and dog in Christmas Day rescue
A woman and her dog were rescued from the sea by emergency teams after going for a Christmas Day walk along the north Norfolk coast.
Mundesley's inshore lifeboat alongside the coastguard and police attended the scene between Bacton and Walcott after the 999 call came in just before 3pm.
Brian Hall, coxswain of Mundesley lifeboat, said the woman was suffering from hypothermia when the crew picked her up.
He said the woman had been walking with her pet along the sea wall, when the dog had come off and gone into the water.
'I think she'd panicked and jumped in straight after and she'd got herself stranded because all the steps have gone between Bacton and Walcott,' Mr Hall added.
