The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) attended the man who had been in the water and was unconscious and not breathing.

Two ambulance crews, a rapid response vehicle, ambulance officer and East Anglian Air Ambulance were dispatched to the Promenade.

They treated a man, believed to be in his 40s, who was in cardiac arrest.

Following treatment at the scene, they managed to resuscitate the patient who was airlifted to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in a critical condition just after 9pm on Thursday night.
