A spokesman for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has confirmed that an aircraft accident occurred in the Cley area of North Norfolk this evening after reports of an air crash in the area.
Three lifeboats were deployed to the scene and have now returned to the RNLI base.
No further details were given on how many passengers were in the aircraft or on their condition.
