A Navy warship and the Coastguard rescue helicopter joined the search for a missing diver off Seaton yesterday (Saturday, May 31).

They were scrambled at around 6pm when the Axmouth based dive charter boat Dawn 2 reported a missing diver approximately two miles south of the village.

Coastguard Helicopter 106 was scrambled from Portland, Beer Coastguards proceeded and both the Warship Tyne and yacht Sulaco joined the search.

As the helicopter arrived on scene the diver was sighted and recovered safe and well to the Dawn 2 which then returned to Axmouth where the crew and diver were met by Beer Coastguard Rescue Officers.
