Everyone involved did everything they could to rescue this person but unfortunately this is increasingly looking like a tragic accident.
A man who was seen struggling to swim off the Dorset coast yesterday has been missing for more than 12 hours.
Rescuers have been searching since 4pm yesterday to the west of Durdle Door.
Portland Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre received 999 calls from members of the public. The callers reported seeing three people in the water, one of whom was in difficulty.
Portland Coastguards have issued a warning after teenagers were seen climbing on rubble after a landslide at St Oswald's Bay. Last month landslides wiped out 100 meters of the Dorset coast path.
Coastguards are warning visitors to keep as far away from the landslides as possible warning if they are climbed on it could start more landslides as well as dislodging rubble and injuring people below.
An air ambulance has been involved in the rescue of a woman who broke her ankle while walking close to Durdle Door in Dorset. Lulworth Coastguard rescue officers escorted an ambulance crew to the scene but they decided to call in the air ambulance.
The coastguards prepared a landing site and the woman was flown to hospital. They also came to the rescue of a sailing boat which broke down eight miles off Portland Bill.
