Fire and lifeboat crews were called out to a boat rescue on the River Yare.

The coastguard was alerted to reports a boat had hit another boat just before Cantley and had 'become disabled'.

The Gorleston lifeboat was called out following the incident at just before 10.20pm yesterday but later stood down.

A fire crew from Acle and a boat team from Carrow attended the rescue and secured the boat and made it safe.

A coastguard spokesman said everyone got off the boat safely.
