A social media post by the Coastguard team said: "[The] Team stayed on scene until paramedics were ready to leave with casualty. We wish the gentlemen a speedy recovery.

"Whilst the team was on this incident, one of our access points to this beach was blocked by cars, luckily we didn't need this route today. Please be mindful of where you park."

Lynxbus has also posted about parking problems at the coast as temperatures soar to 32 Celsius in West Norfolk.

The bus service said: "Due to the sheer volume of traffic and inconsiderate parking along the coast between Brancaster and Holkham/Wells (not only to us but other road users including emergency services!) all our coast services are running late. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused."
