A kayaker had to be airlifted to hospital after he was seen clinging to his over turned craft near Durdle Door.

The casualty who was suffering from hyperthermia was taking part in an event between Portland and Lulworth on Saturday.

The coastguard received reports of several other competitors in difficulty and it was two hours before everyone was accounted for.

There's criticism from the coastguard who say the situation could have been avoided had they'd been made aware of the event.
