An air-sea search mission has been launched for a kayaker who went missing in the Solent, the coastguard has said.

A coastguard helicopter, rescue teams and lifeboats were launched to search off the coast of Hill Head, Hampshire, after the male kayaker failed to return last night.

Ash Rawson, controller at the National Maritime Operations Centre at Fareham, said: “We are searching for a kayaker who was expected home last night.

“A vessel has been in contact with us to report a possible sighting and we are following up on this report as well as continuing our in-depth search of the area with multiple agencies.”
