Weston's RNLI volunteers were paged just after 3pm to sightings of a person in the water possibly requiring assistance.

The D class lifeboat, Adrian Beaumont, was launched and crews arrived on the scene a short while later.

Upon arrival, the man was found to already be in the care of the Clevedon Coastguard Rescue Team who requested the lifeboat transport him to a waiting ambulance further along the shore.

The man was then handed over to the waiting paramedics.
