Lowestoft RNLI have taken part in a major rescue operation this afternoon.
The lifeboat was returning to base after completing its exercises when it saw a boat carrying divers in trouble by the harbour entrance. Mick Richford from the RNLI said:
"The boat was sinking very rapidly. People had to be rescued from the water."
The RNLI say 11 people have been recovered and everyone is now accounted for. A number of ambulances are at the scene and the rescued divers are recovering at the lifeboat station. Several are being assessed as to whether they need to be taken to the James Paget Hospital.
