Lifeboats to rescue


Five seamen have been injured after their vessel collided with a wind turbine, in an incident long feared by yachtsmen.

The Wells and Cromer RNLI lifeboats were called to a vessel called Island Panther following a collision with a tower while working at the wind farm off Sheringham.

All five crew sustained injuries and a doctor was transferred to the vessel by lifeboat. The Island Panther made its way back to Wells where East of England Ambulance Service received the injured crew.
Weather conditions in the area were winds of Force 5 with a one metre swell.
