A Norfolk lifeboat crew has had its busiest start to the school holidays, amid a heatwave where temperatures topped 30C.

Hunstanton RNLI posted on Twitter to say it had received nine call-outs in one week, its “busiest first week to the summer holidays ever”.

It reminded people to keep safe during the summer, and check the tide times.

The region has basked in particularly high temperatures over the last few weeks, with parts of Norfolk reaching as high as 35C.
