A major rescue operation is underway after reports that one person is missing off the coast of Southwold after a charity swim. The race started at midday today at the pier on the Suffolk coast. Under the charity the swim rules included:
- Competitors will begin with a run from the beach into the sea and head off to the direction of the first turn buoy.
- Swimmers would need to swim around orange and yellow buoys
- Competitors were to exit the water on to the beach with a short run to the finish line on the beach marked with banner flags
- In the event that conditions made the swim unsafe then the event will postponed to a later date.
