Two people have been rescued after a hire boat ran aground off Great Yarmouth.
The coastguard were called after the boat was reported stuck near Breydon Bridge on Tuesday, June 14, at about noon.
The rented vessel had run aground outside of the main channel making it impossible for the Great Yarmouth lifeboat to reach it.
The Hemsby Broads Rescue team's boat has a shallower hull and they were called to help.
Two people were rescued from the boat by the Hemsby team and one was transferred to the care of the Great Yarmouth lifeboat crew.
Both casualties were then taken to the yacht station where they were met by Gorleston Coastguard.
It is understood the pair spent the night stuck on the mud flats before being rescued.
