Coastguards were called out to search for two missing youngsters along the west Norfolk coast.
The first incident was reported in Old Hunstanton when the RNLI hovercraft was launched to help find a seven-year-old boy who had gone missing at the beach.
The boy, from Suffolk, who was on a day visit with his family, was reported missing at 3.30pm. The youngster was found 20 minutes later on the Holme beach, by the Hunstanton coast guard team.
The inshore lifeboat and hovercraft were then again sent out at 6pm to look for a three-year-old who had gone missing near the powerboat ramp at Hunstanton. The boy, whose details are not known, was found by people on the beach just before the lifeboats reached the water.
And in Sheringham the town lifeboat launched on Saturday night at around 10pm after reports of a small yacht a mile offshore with no lights despite the darkness. The lifeboat crew spoke to the yacht crew who were sailing for Wells, but were simply unaware they had no lights on.
