Kite surfer rescued off Clacton

A kite surfer had to be rescued after his line got wrapped around a fishing boat moored off Clacton’s Coastline.

Tendring District Council’s Beach Patrol boat was sent to his aid around 10.50am yesterday.

Beach Patrol staff Steve Duggan and Aaron Forsyth went to the incident off Martello Bay after Seafront Warden Danny Sheerer spotted the problem.

There was one person in the water trying to untangle the line and another on the fishing boat.

The Beach Patrol workers helped get the line free and watched as the two managed to get safely ashore.
