AN Exmouth coastwatch worker was thrown straight into the deep end during his first shift when three windsurfers got into trouble at sea last week.

Nicholas Hearn, during his first ever duty watch, received a report of people in difficulty out at sea near Dawlish Warren on Thursday, September 17.

The Exmouth inshore lifeboat was called to attend after two heads were spotted clinging to a red buoy, about 150 yards away from the beach.

Two lifeguards swam out to the two people in distress, staying with them until the lifeboat arrived.
