Three people and dog rescued by lifeboat off Brancaster
Three people and a dog had to be rescued by lifeboat crews after they were cut off by the tide on the West Norfolk coast yesterday.
Hunstanton lifeboat crews were sent to Scolt Head Island, off Brancaster, at around 2.30pm on Wednesday, after Coastguard officials were alerted to the situation.
The group were picked up and returned to shore where they were left in the care of Coastguard crews.
The incident came less than 24 hours after four people had to be helped to safety by a warden after getting into trouble at the same spot.
Later, units were alerted to reports of an inflatable craft in difficulty off Heacham at around 8pm.
However, they were stood down after the inflatable managed to return to the beach.
