A FATHER and his two sons had to be rescued yesterday after their jet ski broke down off the north Norfolk coast.

Sea Palling independent lifeboat crew were called out at about 2pm to help tow the family back to shore.

Jon Bird, land crew member, said the father and sons - thought to be in their early teens - had got into trouble after the jet ski's engine began cutting out and an off-shore wind pushed them towards the reefs.

Life guards on the beach initially went to help but were unable to bring back all three passengers so the lifeboat stepped in.
