A small fishing boat was rescued from off the coast at Weybourne this afternoon.
The vessel had broken down off shore.
Sheringham Lifeboat was paged and requested to launch at 2.39pm.
There were three people on board the vessel, which was towed back to Weybourne and handed over to the coastguard.
The RNLI stated at the beginning of August that in East Anglia: 'the number of non-fatal incidents is highest in August, with the charity's lifeboat crews in the region launching to most emergencies at sea during this busy summer month.

'More people die at the East Anglian coast in August than in any other month of the year.'
Ben Mitchell, RNLI community safety partner for East Anglia, said: 'With summer holidays upon us our fantastic beaches are a draw for many people, but sadly this also means more people losing their lives or getting into danger at the coast.'
