Lowestoft lifeboat was called to help a broken down motorboat this afternoon.

The lifeboat was called at lunchtime to help three people on board the boat, which was six miles north of Lowestoft harbour.

The vessel was being helped by a fishing boat, the Sea Quest, which had taken it in tow, but as there was just one person on board the fishing boat the lifeboat was called to help in foggy conditions.

The motorboat was towed back to Lowestoft harbour.
