Hunstanton’s lifeboat was called out yesterday afternoon to help a kitesurfer in trouble off the coast of the resort.

The crew was scrambled shortly after 1.30pm following an emergency call to the Humber Coastguard, which suggested the surfer had been in the water for up to 30 minutes.

However, the surfer was able to make his own way back to shore. The crew recovered a kite sail from the area.
