Lowestoft: Men found drifting out to sea while drinking for second time in two days

TWO men were taken to shore by coastguard after they were found drinking cider in an inflatable dinghy.

It was the second time the men, who were said to be drifting on the tide at about 11.30 yesterday morning, have been rescued in two days.

A spokesman for Yarmouth coastguard said a crew from Lowestoft gave safety advice to the pair after locating them off Ness Point.
