Police confirm body found in sea is missing boy

Police have confirmed a body found yesterday off the Somerset coast is that of four-year-old Dylan Cecil, who slipped from a jetty into the sea.

Dylan was on holiday with his family when he disappeared under the muddy water at Burnham-on-Sea on Sunday. His body was found less than a mile away.

His family, from Kettering, Northamptonshire, said while they are still traumatised by what has happened they are grateful to have his body back so they can bury him properly.
