The Cromer lifeboat was launched this morning after reports of engine problems on a boat.

The D 734 in-shore lifeboat was launched at 8.05 this morning to a crab boat one mile off the coast with engine problems.

The crew tried to help the two fisherman on board restart the engine but it would not work.

The boat was then towed back to the shore and they were back safe on the beach at 8.18am.
