Two yachts had to be rescued near Yarmouth in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday) after being caught in a storm.

The Needles Coastguard Rescue Team and Yarmouth RNLI was called at 2.04am.

The yachts had suffered damage during last night’s thunderstorms.

The two were escorted into Yarmouth Harbour, before the rescue teams were returned back to station.
