Wells and Sheringham lifeboats called out after engine fails on sight-seeing boat

The Wells and Sheringham lifeboats were launched this morning after the engine of a boat failed.

Three people were on the Warrior vessel, which was being used for a sight-seeing trip to the Sheringham Shoal wind farm.

The Wells D class inshore lifeboat and Jane Ann III vessel responded to a coastguard call at 9.33am.

Sheringham's lifeboat, an Atlantic 85 called The Oddfellows, reached the stranded boat first, which was towed to Blakeney.

After that the vessel was transferred to Wells and towed to Morston Creek, where she was safely moored at 11.25am.
