A man's been rescued from a flooded ditch near the Chesil Beach centre.

He called coastguard teams just after 1.30 this morning to tell them he was trapped in a colvert between Ferry Bridge and Portland.

The Dorset Police helicopter was also involved in the search to find him.

The victim had been in the water for half an hour and was treated at the scene by paramedics.
