Spirit of West NorfolkBroken down motor cruiser in the Wash

At 12.45pm UK Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton RNLI Lifeboat to
assist a 26ft motor cruiser that had broken down in the Wash with two persons on
board.

Hunstanton Lifeboat Spirit of West Norfolk launched on service and located the cruiser.
They took the vessel in tow and arrangements were made to meet up with the Wells lifeboat off Brancaster. The tow was transferred to the Wells lifeboat who took the vessel into Wells Harbour. Hunstanton lifeboat was asked to check the wreck sands on way back to the station. Skegness lifeboat was also launched to a second vessel in the Wash that had also broken down.

Swimmers in difficulty at Brancaster

At 4.00pm just as the lifeboat had returned to station, UK Coastguard requested the
re-launch of Hunstanton RNLI Lifeboat as reports were coming in of 3 people in
difficulty at Brancaster.

Our lifeboat immediately proceeded to Brancaster. On arrival by the Club House, two
crewmen went ashore, where one teenage girl was having CPR. The Air Ambulance landed and paramedics and a Doctor took over. It is understood that a paddle boarder had brought the girl ashore, and that she responded to CPR and was transferred to QE Hospital Kings Lynn by the air ambulance. The other two teenagers were taken to the QE by road ambulance. Local Coastguard were also in attendance.
