The Cromer inshore lifeboat rescued a crab boat that ran out of fuel off the north Norfolk coast this morning.
Three RNLI crew members went out on the vessel at 10.15am to help the Rory James, which was stranded about half a mile out to sea near Overstrand.
It only had one fisherman on board at the time and had run out of fuel, according to Cromer lifeboat operations manager Richard Leeds.
The fisherman was not injured and the Rory James was escorted back to Cromer beach by the inshore lifeboat.
Both boats were back on shore by 10.50am.
