Gorleston lifeboat has been called out to help a stricken pleasure vessel.

HM Coastguard deployed the lifeboat after getting a call at just before 3.10pm on Sunday (November 17) to reports of a "pleasure vessel out of battery" just off the coast at Corton.

The call came in from the boat which has two people on board.

A spokesman for HM Coastguard said the incident was still ongoing at 4.10pm.

The vessel was taken back into Great Yarmouth harbour.
