Dorset fight suspect jumps into Weymouth harbour

A suspect jumped into Weymouth harbour to evade police before allowing himself to be rescued after more than an hour.

Officers had been called to Rodwell Road early on Saturday to reports that three men had attacked another man.

Police made two arrests but the third suspect leapt into the harbour and started swimming out to sea.

An RNLI lifeboat was sent to the scene and the man initially refused to head back to shore before giving himself up. All three men were questioned.

The attacked man was not seriously hurt.
