Coastgaurds and a navy ship were called in after reports of a missing diver two miles off Axmouth.

The Axmouth-based dive charter boat Dawn 2 had reported the emergency and a coastguard helicopter 106 was scrambled from Portland, Beer Coastguards proceeded and both HMS 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.
