Here's the report from the Hemsby life boat

Thursday 14th April 2016


Paged by Humber Coastguard at 17:01hrs after reports of an injured person on a boat at St. Benet’s Abbey

Hemsby Broads Lifeboat’s initial report was to give assistance to an injured person. On arrival at St. Benet’s Abbey a couple on board were found to be in a distressed state due to one of their two dogs entering the water and not surviving, also one of the adults has sustained an injury to their hip during a fall and that the boat had lost steerage from its rudder. The couple had consumed alcohol and were hampering the rescue. It was requested that a Police presence was required and the Broads Lifeboat returned to Thurne Dyke to pick the officers up and take them to the stricken boat which in turn was escorted back to Thurne Dyke with Lifeboat crewmen commanding the boat, with Coastguard and Police on board along with the distressed couple. The Broads Lifeboat and Fire and Rescue boat were in escort.

Also on scene were Winterton CRT, Norfolk Police, Ambulance Service and the Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service Carrow

Broads Lifeboat returned to station and were back on service at 21:10hrs
