Hunstanton’s lifeboat crew was called to assist the crew of a broken down fishing boat in the Wash yesterday morning.

The crew of the Spirit of West Norfolk was initially called to the vessel, which had two people on board, at around 10.45am on Saturday.

The lifeboat towed the boat as far as Daseley’s Sand, where it ran aground due to the reducing tide.

The boat was left there, with radio communication to the lifeboat, before being towed back to Lynn in the evening.
