A lifeboat crew were called out to assist a cruiser, which had got into difficulties.
The Great Yarmouth and Gorleston inshore lifeboat launched at about 7.58pm last night (Saturday) after the cruiser suffered engine failure.
A post on the Great Yarmouth & Gorleston Lifeboat Facebook page said the ILB Seahorse IV was launched by Humber Coastguard 'to attend a cruiser which had lost steering, followed by engines, and consequently went on the mud at Breydon Water.
'A tow was set up by the ILB to the casualty vessel with two people and two dogs on board. Once in the channel the casualty vessel was able to restart their engine and steer once more.'
The cruiser was then escorted to Goodchild Marine, where they were met by HM Coastguard rescue officers from Gorleston.
