Happisburgh lifeboat was launched after reports that a dinghy was floating off the north Norfolk coast.

Lifeboat spokesman Philip Smith said: 'We were called at 12.21pm on Good Friday to a dinghy floating about 400m off Happisburgh Lighthouse.

'The boat was launched with a crew of three. A search was carried out but the dinghy was not found, and we were stood down.'
