There were dramatic scenes on the hottest weekend of the year so far as sun-worshippers converged on Cromer.
A sighting of a person in trouble in the sea prompted the launch of the lifeboat in Cromer on the hottest weekend of the year so far.
The alarm was raised with HM Coastguard by a member of the public on Saturday at 4.50pm, as temperatures reached the mid 20s.
By 5.07pm, the inshore lifeboat was launched and searched the area around the pier.
However, nothing was found and, after discussions with the police and coastguard, the search was called off.
