Three sisters rescued after they were swept out sea in Norfolk have prompted warnings from coastguards about the dangers of tidal currents.
The girls were seen clinging to a buoy at Brancaster yesterday afternoon. Two of them lost their grip, unable to hold on any longer.
They were plucked from the water, just in time, by a hovercraft rescue crew.
