At 17.12 hrs at the request of Humber Coastguard the Sheringham Lifeboat was launched to assist in the evacuation of persons seen to be trapped on the rock groyne opposite the area known locally as 'The Tank'.
As the Lifeboat approached the groyne the people managed to scramble ashore to safety and the Lifeboat was stood down.
These rock groynes are covered with shap barnicles and slippery seaweed and have the potential to cause serious injury or even entrapment in the voids between the rocks.
Good service professionally undertaken.
