A man treated lifeboat crews to a McDonalds breakfast after they rescued him.
Hemsby Lifeboat and Lowestoft and Southwold Coastguard teams were paged to search for a cruiser reported drifting out of fuel in the area of Burgh St Peter and Oulton Broad at 10.30pm last night.
The boat was found with a man and a dog onboard who were safe and well.
It was escorted using spare fuel from the Broads Lifeboat with crewman onboard helping the boat to Beccles Old Bridge for mooring.
Gerard Roadley-Battin, 2nd Coxswain for Hemsby Lifeboat said: 'Once moored the gentleman was taken to Geldeston Dyke to recover his vehicle and we returned to his boat, job over, or so we thought.

'On stowing the Broads Lifeboat and equipment away we proceeded to Beccles petrol station to refuel the boat, and while there, decided to have a hot drink at the adjacent McDonalds.
'On entering we recognised the gentleman from the cruiser having the same thought as us, and being a very grateful man he treated the whole crew to an early breakfast. We were very grateful.'
