A woman with a suspected broken arm was rescued by Hunstanton RNLI hovercraft members at Titchwell Marsh, yesterday evening.

Humber Coastguard put out a call at 6.15pm for the hovercraft to assist two persons cut off on the marsh. On arrival, both persons were taken aboard the hovercraft and landed at Brancaster beach by the golf club into the care of the local coastguard team to await an ambulance.

The craft was then released to return to station, whilst on passage the crew were asked to check out a report of persons thought to be in trouble off Hunstanton cliffs, also a report of a dinghy drifting out to sea, but nothing was found and the persons under the cliff were fishermen.
