Sheringham lifeboat launched following a report that a dinghy was in difficulty off the coast.

A warden at Cley Marshes nature reserve raised the alert around 4.45pm after it disappeared from view.

Crew members located the inflatable with a man, woman and teenage boy on board.

Lifeboat operations manager Brian Farrow said: 'When we got there they were fishing from the dinghy with the engine switched off.

'There was quite a swell, but we were able to escort them back to shore safely.'
