Emergency services spent more than four hours searching for a kayaker missing on a charity trip round Britain.

The man, thought to be Guy Slater, from Cambridge, left King's Lynn in Norfolk on the River Lynn on Wednesday and had not been heard from since contacting family on Thursday.

The Coastguard said at 16:15 GMT he had been "located safe and well" camping at Gore Point, north of Hunstanton.

The search from The Wash to Wells involved three lifeboats.

Mr Slater's website says he is raising money for RNLI lifeboats and the cancer charity Force, which is based in Devon where Mr Slater grew up.
