People have been urged to take care on the Norfolk coast after Wells lifeboat was launched twice in three days to rescue people cut off by the tide.

At around 7.30pm on Saturday a man and a woman in their 40s from The Midlands were rescued just east of Lady Anne's Drive, at Holkham.

At 4.30pm on Thursday two young women were rescued from Scolt Head Island, near Burnham Overy Staithe.

Nobody was harmed.

A spokesman for the Wells Lifeboat Station said: 'We are seeing more and more people cut off by the tide in this area.
