Hunstanton lifeboat crews were scrambled to rescue a kitesurfer off the resort this lunchtime.

An emergency call was made shortly before 1pm saying the man has been off his board and in the water for a long time.

The surfer did manage to return to the shore unaided where he was found to be exhausted but otherwise unharmed.
