Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this morning at 0350 by Humber Coastguard, to reports of a 17-foot cruiser adrift in the area of Riverside, it was suspected that there were no persons on board. Once on scene, we were made aware that in fact there were other boats also adrift, again with no persons on board.

With land-based assistance from the Gorleston Coastguard team, we were able to locate both vessels. One of the owners had been warned about the incident and was able to recover their own boat and resecure it in the designated mooring. The second of the vessels was taken under tow and moored safely. The details of that vessel and its location were reported to Humber Coastguard so that the owner could be informed of its location.

Hemsby Broads Rescue continued to search to ensure no further vessels had been missed. Once we were certain all vessels had been dealt with, we recovered the Broads Rescue boat and returned to base. The equipment was cleaned down and prepared for the next call by 0900.

It is suspected that this was an ill-conceived prank, which could have resulted in damage and injury, luckily this was not the case on this occasion. Our thanks to the crew and Gorleston Coastguard teams and also to Carrow Yacht Club, in Norwich, for allowing us to use their slipway for our recovery.

We hope this was a one-off prank and urge the public to report any suspicious activity they may witness to the police to prevent the risk of damage, loss, or injury.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged this afternoon by Humber Coastguard to assist a leisure boat from Phoenix Hire which was experiencing mechanical difficulties and was unable to make contact with the Hire company and so requested assistance via the coastguard.

Hemsby Broads Rescue launched from Cess Road Martham and quickly located the stricken vessel with two persons on board. After ensuring the occupants were safe and well their vessel was taken under tow back to its mooring at Potter Heigham.

Our thanks to all the crew who turned out including our newest member who has just completed his initial training and waited at the Station to help with the clean down. Our thanks also to Cess Road Boatyard who opened the slipway for us and allowed us to have a key for future use.

Add To Ignore List
Where were Phoenix then - having their tea break?    You can hear that phone miles away, you cannot ignore it.   They must have been really panicking ,  same as I would have been up stream of the bridge,  no one around for miles especially at this time of year.   Well done our rescue services.

Team paged at 19.45 last night to assist the ambulance service to access a property in Wroxham.
The property was at the side of the broads, in an area which was completely flooded.
The team gained access to the property and made sure the paramedics could get in safely,  to treat the casualty.

Hemsby Broads Rescue was paged last night at approximately 2020hrs to assist in the search for a vulnerable male in the area of the Beauchamp Arms. The boat was launched at Brundall Marina and a search was conducted up to the Beauchamp Arms.

With no sign of the male the boat was then tasked to search back as far as The Ferry House, Surlingham. After an extensive search there was no sign of the male, and the Crew were eventually stood down and returned to base.

Also on scene were the Fire Service, Police, Winterton and Gorleston Coastguard teams, as well as NPAS and Broads Beat. Our thanks to the crew who took part in the search and those that remained on station and assisted with the clean-down.

These are difficult times for all of us and it is vital that we remain vigilant and offer support to those in vulnerable positions. Stay safe.
