Two groups of people were given 'safety advice' after they were spotted climbing on rocks at Ness Point in Lowestoft.

Concerns were raised at about 7.45pm last night (Wednesday), with police and the Lowestoft and Southwold coastguard teams called to the area.

A spokesman for HM Coastguard Lowestoft and Southwold said they were called out at 7.48pm after a member of public raised concerns 'for the well-being of numerous adults and children' on the rocks at Ness Point.

Responding to their 66th call-out of the year so far, six coastguard rescue officers attended. On arrival police officers were speaking with the two groups involved.

The spokesman added: 'The team liaised with the police and provided safety advice to the groups, remaining on scene until all adults and children were leaving the area and safely off the rocks.'
