The Hunstanton RNLI has been praised on social media after rescuing three teenage girls who were struggling against the tide off the north Norfolk coast.

A crew was called out to help the girls who were off Brancaster in their inflatable kayak on Sunday afternoon.

Susan Wells said on Facebook: “Well done lads yet again.”

Peter Burnham added: “The answer to why are they so far out is that they were blown out by off-shore winds. There may be little wind by the beach when blowing off-shore but it will ramp up further out.”

Liz Livock added: “Thank God you guys responded so swiftly. Without you, the outcome would most probably have been very different.

Kathy Brotherhood said: “Fabulous job crew.”

And Beryl English added: “You are all very brave and good people.”
