A lifeboat crew had to be called out to help the police following reports of a 'complicated personal situation'.
Sheringham Lifeboat, the Oddfellows, was tasked by Humber Coastguard to standby while officers from Norfolk Constabulary and coastguard teams dealt with a person on the beach.
A spokesperson for Sheringham lifeboat said: '[The] lifeboat was tasked by Humber Coastguard to standby in the nearshore zone in a central location in Sheringham whilst the police and coastguard teams dealt with a complicated personal situation.
'The lifeboat and crew stood by close inshore whilst the police gradually calmed the situation and eventually escorted a person safely from the beach.'
The RNLI lifeboat was launched on Sunday December 16 at 11.45pm, close to the incident.
