A person was rescued by a lifeboat at Wells after they fell into difficulty in the harbour.

The incident happened on Saturday, May 20 at 7.37pm, when a lifeboat was called to help a person who was in the water.

A lifeboat from the Wells RNLI station arrived at 7.53pm and found the person in between the Quay wall and a fishing boat.

Two life rings had been thrown in by members of the public from the quayside.

However, the person was not able to get out of the water without help and a crew member assisted them into the boat.

The rescued person was described as "tired and cold" and was handed over to the care of ambulance teams.

The news comes after a weekend of lifeboat emergencies across the county, perhaps spurred by the high temperatures seeing people flock to the coast.

A person was also rescued off the coast of Hunstanton on Sunday and was taken to hospital.
