The Duke of Cambridge has taken part in a search mission to rescue a man swept into the sea in Blackpool in gale-force winds.
William, an RAF Search and Rescue helicopter pilot, was called out with crewmates from his base at RAF Valley on Anglesey to help locate a man in the early hours of New Year's Day, sources have confirmed to the Press Association.
The 41-year-old was reportedly walking his dog with another man when he was swept into the sea.
The Duke used the lights from his Sea King helicopter to help RNLI and Coastguard crews from Blackpool and Lytham St Annes look for the man in the water.
The search for the man was called off today after rescue crews were unable to find him.
