Falmouth coastguard is appealing for information after a capsized kayak was discovered off the Devon coast.

The distinctive camouflaged vessel was found one mile south east of Start Point yesterday.

It was submerged in the water, with a paddle attached and a jacket stowed onboard.

An air and sea search was carried out but there was no sightings of anyone in the water.

After the kayak was reported to us an air and sea search involving Salcombe RNLI Lifeboats, Prawle Point Coastguard Rescue Team and the Coastguard Rescue Helicopter was carried out.

A thorough search of the area was carried out with no sightings of anyone in the water. The kayak was submerged in the water, with a paddle attached and a jacket stowed onboard.

There were no details of the owner and no indication of where it had come from.

The capsized kayak has since been recovered. If you have any information at all related to found kayak please contact Falmouth Coastguard.
