A woman had to be flown to hospital after becoming unwell on a Norfolk beach.

The HM Coastguard team at Bacton was paged at 2.03pm on Sunday, June 30 to reports of a woman "feeling very unwell" on Happisburgh beach.

A spokesperson for the coastguard team said: "On arrival the team gave first aid while awaiting for an ambulance.

"Once paramedics were on scene it was decided due to the condition of the lady it would be best to transfer her by air.

"The team made the beach safe and cleared an area to land the helicopter.
