Burnham-On-Sea lifeboats in night search for missing man

Both Burnham-On-Sea's lifeboats were launched at 1.50am this morning (Sunday, July 11th) to search for a missing person.

Two RNLI lifeboats and a team of Burnham Coastguards searched for the man, who was believed to be in the sea at Brean.

"There was concern for the man, who had been reported to be in the water at low tide," Burnham RNLI Operations Manager Ricky Holmes told

A helicopter from RAF Chivenor also joined the search for the man, who was found after several minutes covered in mud walking up the beach by Coastguards with the early signs of hypothermia.
