A body has been found in the sea off Guernsey's south west coast, police have confirmed.

The coastguard found the body around 10:20am nine miles South West of Les Hanois Lighthouse, and it was recovered from the water by police and lifeboat crew.

Officers say they are investigating but can't provide any details about the identity of the body.
