A search and rescue helicopter was scrambled to Norfolk today after a man suffered stomach pains on board a boat near Cromer.

The helicopter from Wattisham assisted with a medical evacuation from a stand-by vessel for oil rigs 30 miles off Cromer at about 8.30am this morning.

He was taken to the James Paget University Hospital (JPUH) for medical assessment and was believed to be suffering from bad stomach pains.
