A lifeboat crew was called to help a cabin cruiser with engine problems this evening.

It happened around 6.45pm when the RNLI lifeboat at Hunstanton launched at the request of the UK Coastguard.

The lifeboat, Spirit of West Norfolk, rushed to the aid of two passengers aboard an eight-metre cabin cruiser which got into trouble off Snettisham.

The cabin cruiser was towed to King's Lynn and the crew was stood down around 8.30pm.
