A lifeboat crew were called to rescue a boat in the Norfolk Broads after it became unmoored during Storm Isha.

The crew from Hemsby were called to the scene at Acle Bridge in the early hours of this morning after a 62-foot-long converted barge had become untethered from its moorings.

The boat became loose during Storm Isha which battered the region with up to 69mph winds.

A secure line was fastened to the back of the barge where the teams firmly secured it back in its original position.

It comes just days after the lifeboat crew at Hemsby were forced out of their home following coastal erosion along the coastline.

A yellow weather warning for wind is in place until midday today.

The Met Office said Storm Isha – the ninth named storm to hit the UK since the season began in September – is expected to pull away through the day, although it is expected to remain windy with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers.
