Mundesley inshore lifeboat called to help fishing boat caught in swell

A fishing boat caught in a swell was rescued yesterday (Tuesday) evening by a lifeboat crew from north Norfolk.

The Mundesley inshore lifeboat was called at around 5.50pm to help the 16ft fishing boat which was unable to beach along the town's coast.

The three people on board were rescued by the crew and the boat was rowed ashore near the boathouse using a drogue.

A spokesman for the Mundesley inshore lifeboat said: 'The boat was caught in a mid to heavy swell but everyone on board was rescued and were safe and well.'
