The search for a man who was apparently spotted struggling in the sea off the coast of Lowestoft has been called off.

Three RNLI lifeboats as well as Coastguard Rescue teams were sent out to try and find the man after the alarm was raised just before 1pm on Tuesday afternoon.

However, nothing was found and the search was abandoned at 4.45pm.

The UK Coastguard has urged anyone who may know anything to get in touch.
