Search for 'man swept out to sea' off Dorset coast
- 27 October 2013
- From the section Dorset
A major overnight search has been carried out off the coast of Dorset due to fears a man could have been swept out to sea by large waves.
A witness spotted a photographer on the Cobb at Lyme Regis on Saturday evening, but when they looked back a short time later he was no longer there.
A search involving the coastguard helicopter and a RNLI lifeboat took place but has now been stood down.
Coastguards, who say no-one is reported missing, are appealing for information.
The sea conditions at the time were described as "dangerous".
