RAF helicopter rescue of lost jet-skiers

Two jet skiers who put to sea from Hunstanton, North Norfolk, used a mobile phone to call Yarmouth Coastguard after they lost their bearings.

They thought they were ashore on Wainfleet Sands and Yarmouth Coastguard scrambled a rescue helicopter from RAF Wattisham and also requested the the launch of Skegness lifeboats.

The helicopter found them on Holbeach Range, an RAF bombing range, and airlifted them to safety.
