Cromer's inshore lifeboat has gone to the aid of the yacht Bite the Bullet which was aground at nearby Overstrand earlier this morning.

The yacht is thought to have rope fouling its propellor. A large fishing vessel, the Richard William, pulled the yacht off the beach and the lifeboat is on scene assessing the situation.

It is not known how many people are aboard the yacht.
