Lowestoft: Video Shows Dramatic Sea Rescue After Boat Fire

A video's been released of the dramatic moment three men were rescued after their boat caught fire and sank near Lowestoft.

The men were on their way to work on a windfarm when the fire started.

They abandoned ship and scrambled into a life raft before being winched to safety by the RAF Search and Rescue helicopter from Wattisham.

The RNLI also launched a lifeboat from Lowestoft and filmed the final moments of the boat as it burned and then sank to the bottom of the sea.

The men were taken to the James Paget Hospital to be checked over and have since been released.
