Cromer RNLI launched its inshore lifeboat after reports of a person in difficulty on the pier.
The station received a request to launch at 1.30pm this afternoon, Thursday, June 28, after a call to HM Coastguard reported a person threatening to jump from the pier.
The George and Muriel inshore lifeboat was launched in response.
A spokesperson for Cromer RNLI said: “After a short while it was apparent the situation was being dealt with on the pier and the lifeboat was stood down.”
They added: “By 2pm the boat had returned to the station, been cleaned down, refuelled and made ready for its next service.”
Billy Gaff, deputy launch authority said: “Our training means we are able to deal with all situations, whether on land or the water.
“Today we were called to a situation which was resolved with the person getting the help they needed.”
Cromer Lifeboat Station has been operating in the town since 1804.
