A woman was rescued by Lowestoft's lifeboat after getting into difficulties in the sea.

The lifeboat was launched at around 9pm yesterday (Friday, July 13) to assist a woman in the water at North Denes.

HM Coastguard said she was found at the end of a groyne, which is a structure put in place to prevent erosion.

'She was successfully rescued from the water and handed to the care of the East of England Ambulance Service', a coastguard spokesman said.

It is understood that the woman did not suffer any injuries.
