An inquest is to be resumed today into the death of a 14-year-old boy who died after he fell from a boat and was apparently hit by the propeller.

Charlie Hutton, was enjoying a ride on the boat driven by his father from Mudeford, Dorset, to The Needles landmark off the Isle of Wight when the accident happened last year.

It appears the boy and one of his friends fell into the sea. The friend suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.

A third boy, and the dead boy's father, Simon Hutton, who owned the rigid hull inflatable boat managed to stay on board.

Charlie, a talented hockey player whose ambition was to compete in the Olympics, was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital by Coastguard helicopter but couldn't be saved.

In a statement released through police after the incident, Charlie's parents, Simon and Gill Hutton, from Surrey, said:

"We are very sad to announce the death of our beautiful and very talented boy. Charlie was academically bright, an accomplished musician and an amazing field hockey player who had trained with the England under-15 team ...with the ambition of eventually playing for Britain in the Olympics in 2020.

"His effort, passion and self-belief would surely have taken him there. Our thanks go to all those who helped Charlie achieve such an incredible amount."
