Body found after search involving Burnham-On-Sea Coastguards

The body of a man was recovered from the sea on Thursday morning (August 16th) following a major search by Coastguards from Weston and Burnham-On-Sea.

The body was found by the teams after a man was reported to be missing near Weston's Birnbeck Pier.

Burnham Coastguards were called to provide extra manpower in the search of the coastline at 7.30am.

The search was launched after a passer-by spotted an abandoned wheelchair on a path behind the town's Royal Pier Hotel. Tragically, a body was found in the sea nearby at about 9.30am.
