RNLI Hunstanton has launched its hovercraft to search for a missing bate digger.

The RNLI has launched a hovercraft in the search for a missing bait digger who did not return home at the time he was expected.

It was launched from Hunstanton lifeboat station just before 2.50pm on Tuesday after a man who was digging for worms for fishing bait did not return home.

An RNLI Hunstanton spokesperson said: "We're just out searching for him at the moment but he could be anywhere.

"We're just searching the area to make sure that he's not actually missing in the water."
