Boy named after propeller death

The identity of a teenage boy who died in a boating accident off the Isle of Wight is being confirmed by Hampshire Constabulary and his next-of-kin.

Charlie Joseph Hutton, 14, from Surrey, was pronounced dead at Southampton General Hospital after falling overboard from a rigid hull inflatable near The Needles on Friday.

The boat was travelling from Mudeford in Dorset to the Isle of Wight when two of the four people on board fell into the water, getting tangled with the propeller.
