The Sheringham Lifeboat was launched at the request of Humber Coastguard at 10.15 hrs to go to the assistance of two swimmers thought to be introuble approx 200metres seaward of the shelter on the east promenade known locally as the 'Tank'. The tide was in full flood with a 15knot westerly wind generating a 1.5 metre swell.
A concered member of the public had alerted a Deputy Launching Authority (DLA) of Sheringham Lifeboat who in turn alerted Humber Coastguard.
The Lifeboat was launched and escorted the two swimmers back to shore.
