Wyke's Coastguard team assisted the man before he was taken taken to hospital, suffering possible hypothermia.

Dominic Lonsdale, Watch Manager at Portland Coastguard, said:

"This man was very lucky to have been spotted and rescued by another fishing vessel, particularly with the cold water temperature
