A north Norfolk lifeboat team has been called out twice in one night to help the police and other emergency services.
Cromer lifeboat received a call at 5.17.pm on Friday, November 6, to help the police and Sheringham lifeboat search for a missing person thought to be in the water.
The missing person was later found onshore and both the Cromer and Sheringham boats were stood down.
Cromer’s all-weather lifeboat returned to its station, was refuelled and made ready for its next call by 6 05pm.
The team then received a second alert at 8.22pm this time with a request for RNLI Cromer’s inshore lifeboat ‘George and Muriel’ to be launched to assist the police, coastguard and ambulance service with an incident on Cromer’s east beach.
