Hunstanton's inshore lifeboat today dealt with three separate incidents involving kite boarders getting into difficulties in the sea.

The first incident happened at about 10am when a kite boarder was spotted off Old Hunstanton beach down on the water and was drifting out to sea. He was picked up and landed back on the beach with his equipment.

About an hour later the crew was called out to the same location but were not needed as another kite boarder had assisted by towing the man ashore.

The last call of the morning was shortly before noon just as the crew had finished cleaning down the lifeboat. A woman kite boarder was reported in difficulties off Brancaster but she got back to the beach before the crew arrived.
