At 11.43 hrs at the request of Humber Coastguard the Sheringham Lifeboat was launched to assist in the search for a possible missing drift diver.

Three divers had been diving on the wreck off Weybourne beach but they became separated in the tide as they went ashore. Humber coastguard was informed and tasked Sheringham Lifeboat to undertake an expanding search of the area.

On arrival on scene the Lifeboat searched the area around the wreck but nothing as found. The crew then used binoculars to search a wider area and spotted three divers walking along the beach towards the local coastguard search team.

Humber coastguard confirmed that the missing diver had been found safe and well and the search was called off. Cromer all weather lifeboat which was still progressing towards the scene was also stood down

Good service professionally undertaken with a good result.
