Hunstanton lifeboat crew rescued a film crew of nine people, including a one-year-old baby in a pram, stranded at Brancaster on Wednesday.

The RNLI was alerted at around 4.45pm by the Coastguard to the group cut off by the tide on the wreck sands.

The rescuers found the group near the wreck. They said they were a film crew and had not realised the state of the tide.

It took the RNLI three journeys to rescue the group and all their equipment.

They were taken in the hovercraft to the safety of the beach.

The previous day, the lifeboat crew had been called to help five people at Scolt Head Island, Brancaster.

Three adults and two children were taken to safety by the hovercraft crew which was alerted by the Coastguard around 4.45pm.

Holidaymakers and visitors to the seaside have been urged to be aware of the dangers of tides, strong currents and sandbanks.
