Police speak about search for Burnham missing sea boy

Teams searching for a four-year-old boy who fell into the sea at Burnham-on-Sea in Somerset have said their effort is now focussed on recovering his body.

A call was made at about 18:00 BST on Sunday after the boy's parents were seen going into the sea to rescue him.

Because of the strong currents the couple were unable to reach their son, named as Dylan Cecil, from Kettering.

Supt Keith McCoubrey, from Avon and Somerset Police, said they were pulled from the water by ambulance crew.
