A lifeboat was called out to help a small fishing vessel after it broke down off the coast of Lowestoft.

The town's lifeboat was called to assist the craft, which had two people on board, shortly after 2.20pm today (August 6).

A coastguard spokesman said the boat, called Hazel, was around 15ft long and had to be towed back into Lowestoft.

No one was injured and the lifeboat returned at around 3.20pm.
