Two Coastguard helicopters, a lifeboat and two other vessels are currently dealing with a ship fire off the coast of Cromer.
The seven crew of the ship are currently still on board and trying to keep the fire under control. An additional Coastguard rescue helicopter from Humberside is on scene along with the Cromer RNLI Lifeboat.
The UK Coastguard received a mayday message, broadcast at 5.20 this morning to report that the vessel, which is carrying wheat to Rotterdam, had a fire in its accommodation.
"The crew are still on board the vessel and keeping the fire under control. However, we have a rescue helicopter hovering above as well as a lifeboat on scene so that, should the need arise, they can evacuate the ship.
"The Humberside Fire and Rescue fire fighting crew will be on scene soon and will assess the fire at that point.”
A mayday relay message was immediately broadcast and several vessels responded offering their assistance.
Two of these are now on scene with the vessel.
Lifeguards have rescued four teenagers who were swept out to sea and an 11-year-old who broke her leg in Cromer.
A lifeguard found the girl, who was lying in an awkward position on the seaweed covered pathway beneath the pier.
Later in the day, four teenagers were also rescued in the same area.
RNLI lifeguards spotted the teens in difficulty as they were caught in a current drifting towards Cromer pier yesterday afternoon (August 6).
The group were paddled to safety. No one else was hurt.
