A lifeboat was scrambled from Cromer this morning after a fishing vessel got into trouble off the north Norfolk coast.
The coast guard received a call at around 4.50am on Friday to reports of a broken down boat less than a mile out to sea from Cromer.
It had suffered an engine failure and had multiple people on board.
The fishing boat, which was around 15ft in length, had to be towed back to Cromer by the town's lifeboat.
