Wells lifeboat helps divers in broken down boat off Blakeney point.
A lifeboat crew were called out to help divers whose boat had broken down off Blakeney Point.
Wells-Next-the-Sea's inshore lifeboat was called to assist a diving inflatable boat which had broken down off Blakeney Point on Sunday .
The seven metre rigid inflatable boat, called Jimmyrib, had six people on board who had been diving offshore and was from Morston where most of the seal-trip boats are based.
The vessel had left Morston on the morning tide and had been out all day. As she was returning on the evening tide her engine failed near Blakeney Point and the crew radioed Yarmouth coastguard for assistance.
Wells Lifeboat was contacted at 6.30pm on Sunday and the inshore lifeboat, Jane Ann III, launched nine minutes later. She arrived on the scene at 7pm.
