A windsurfer has died after getting into difficulties in a Hampshire harbour.

The coastguard was called at 12:15 GMT on Saturday when the man was spotted face down in the water with some windsurfing gear near Langstone Bridge.

He was pulled from the water and flown to Portsmouth's Queen Alexandra Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

A coastguard spokeswoman said it was not yet clear what had happened to him.
