It's thought a call for help in the middle of the night to Hunstanton RNLI was a prank.

On Wednesday (8 July), UK Coastguard received reports of a person shouting for help in the water at Old Hanstanton at 00.40am.

The volunteer lifeboat crew was launched and started a sea search, while the coastguard searched the beach.

Nothing was found and the first informant had left the area without making further contact. All crews were stood down and the call has been recorded as a suspected hoax.
