Exmouth coastguards search for kite surfer

Reports a kitesurfer was in difficulty on Monday evening prompted a search by Exmouth coastguards.

The team was tasked shortly after 7pm after it was reported a kitesurfer was in difficulty near the entrance to the River Exe.

A Portland coastguard spokesperson said: “On scene they had a good look around but could find nothing untoward, neither did broadcast action elicit any further information.”
