Sheringham and Wells lifeboats aid stricken boat with three on board

Lifeboat crews from Sheringham and Wells went to the aid of three people whose boat had broken down off Blakeney this morning.

The trio were aboard a rigid inflatable boat, the Warrior, and contacted Yarmouth Coastguard after suffering engine failure at about 9.30am during a sightseeing trip to view the Sheringham Shoal off-shore windfarm.

Sheringham Lifeboat, which was on a routine training exercise at the time, towed the boat to the Blakeney fairway buoy and handed her over to the care of their Wells colleagues who towed the boat to Morston creek where she was safely moored at 11.25am.
