Lifeboat and Coastguard crews rescued a swimmer who was found clinging to a buoy.

The man had got into difficulty in the channel at Burnham Overy Staithe at around 5.15pm on Monday.

And on Saturday evening the Coastguard joined forces with police to rescue an “intoxicated” woman who had got into difficulty in the water in Hunstanton.

She was handed over to medics for treatment following the rescue.
