There has been a dramatic air sea rescue this afternoon after a swimmer was swept almost a mile along the coast in heavy seas and strong tides near Flamborough Head.
Two beachgoers dived into the water to try and help the person as they were overwhelmed by large waves at Flamborough North Landing. It is thought the swimmer spent more than half an hour in the water before being rescued by the Flamborough lifeboat at Breil Nook, almost a mile further south.
Humber coastguard say the swimmer and one of those who had swum out to help them were airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary by the coastguard helicopter. There is no word on their condition.
