Rescue drama off Norfolk coast

Two wind turbine workers were rescued after their boat broke down off the Norfolk coast.

The engine of the rigid inflatable boat, called Henry, had failed just off the coast at Mundesley at about 4.20pm on Monday as the two passengers made their way back from Wells, where they had been working on the Sheringham wind turbines, to Lowestoft.

Great Yarmouth coastguard were alerted and the Mundesley lifeboat towed the boat to Winterton. The Caister lifeboat then took over and towed the boat the rest of the way to Lowestoft. They arrived in Lowestoft at about 10pm.
