Two anglers were rescued by Hunstanton lifeboat after their boat broke down in The Wash.

The 15m vessel developed gear box problems in the Freeman Channel, off the Lincolnshire coast, on Sunday afternoon.

The lifeboat launched at 5.10pm and took around 20 minutes to reach them.

The lifeboat towed the vessel back to its mooring in Boston.
