A Norfolk lifeboat crew sprung into action after a boat was left stranded when it lost power at a nature reserve.
The Great Yarmouth and Gorleston lifeboat were alerted by Humber Coastguard at about 5pm on Friday, May 13.
The boat in need of aid had lost power on Breydon Water, just east of Great Yarmouth, and one person was on board.
The John Rowntree vessel was launched and quickly found the stricken vessel.
After coming alongside, the team carried out welfare checks for the person on board.
The person was deemed fit.
The boat was then towed to the nearest quay.
