Three swimmers rescued by Sheringham Lifeboat
A father and his two children were rescued off the north Norfolk coast tonight after their jet ski broke down.
The Sheringham Lifeboat was launched at 5.20pm this evening to the assistance of the jet skiers who were drifting out to sea.
The two youngsters got into trouble when their jet ski broke down one mile off Water Lane, West Runton, near Sheringham.
Their father paddled a kayak out to try to help them and after being unable to re-start the jet ski all three decided to swim ashore.
The lifeboat arrived on scene at about 5.40pm and picked up all three swimmers, who were being dragged out to sea by the tide.
