The coastguard helped a woman who had fallen and hurt herself on Gorleston beach.
The incident, which happened yesterday at 2.25pm, had seen a woman fall and sustain several injuries while walking along the sand.
During a long delay for an ambulance to arrive due to high demand, coastguard team members and RNLI lifeguards provided first aid and comfort to the woman.
Paramedics from a private company who were attending the Gorleston Cliff Top Gala also helped provide care as the casualty’s pain became worse.
HM Gorleston Coastguard said on a Facebook post: “Shortly after their arrival the Ambulance service arrived on scene.

This job was a good example of how different agencies work well together for the best outcome of the casualty. Well done everyone.”
