The body of a man and his kayak have been found in the water this afternoon off the coast of Dorset.
The man was found during the search for 60-year-old Alistair Collier who failed to return after a race yesterday afternoon between Knoll Beach and Swanage Pier.
He was found by a coastguard aircraft.
A search has been taking place since yesterday afternoon using lifeboats and rescue teams from across the south coast.
Formal identification has not yet taken place, but Alistair’s family have been informed and the coroner has been notified.
