Boat capsizes at Harbour Bar, Blakeney, during fishing trip
A woman was taken to hospital after the boat she was fishing in capsized last night (Friday).
The casualty who is in her 40s from Scotland was mackerel fishing at Harbour Bar, Blakeney, with a man, also in his 40s from Cambridgeshire.
Wells inshore lifeboat was launched just before 7.30pm and because the sea conditions were choppy the all-weather lifeboat was also called out.
The couple were rescued by a rigid inflatable boat from Norfolk Etc Sailing School, based in Morston.
The capsized boat was towed to Wells.
