Three rescued from stranded boat
Three people were rescued off the
Suffolk coast after high winds forced
their boat onto rocks.
The boat, from an offshore oil rig, was
on its way to Lowestoft port to collect
a water pump for a rig supply ship.
But the 45mph (72 kph) winds pushed it
onto the rocks at Ness Point near
Lowestoft on Friday night.
Lowestoft lifeboat went out and lifted
the three people off the rocks before
bringing them to the harbour. They were
all said to be safe and well.
