A man has been found dead in Poole bay off the coast of Dorset.

A kayaker came across the body between East Hook buoy and Old Harry Rocks just before 14:00 GMT.

Two lifeboats from the RNLI were called to the scene and began an extensive search of the area and managed to locate the person and bring him back to shore.

A Dorset Police spokeswoman said the death does not appear to be suspicious but officers are investigating.
