Surfer found dead on the South Coast

The body of a dead surfer has been found drifting in the sea close to a famous beauty spot.

The man's body - which was still attached to his surf board - was spotted by a passer-by at Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset, at 2.15pm 09th Oct. A police spokesman said the body was found next to a slipway.

He added that a camper van had been recovered and steps were being taken to identify the deceased. The spokesman said: 'Dorset police is investigating on behalf of the coroner because there are no suspicious circumstances.'

A spokesman for Portland Coastguards said: 'A member of the public had seen what they thought was a body on Kimmeridge Slipway. 'A coastguard helicopter and rescue team were tasked to attend the scene and confirmed there was a body of a man in the water.

'He was a surfer and was still attached to his board. We are unsure how long he was in the water but yesterday's sea conditions were not very good for surfing.'However, they were the day before, so he could have been at sea for a long period of time before being found.'

A post-mortem examination is due to take place today to establish the unnamed man's cause of death.
