Devon coastguards search for dinghy rower

Coastguards are trying to trace a man who was last seen in an 8ft (2.4m) open rowing dinghy off the Devon coast.

The man was spotted one mile south of Bolt Head, off Salcombe, at 14:30 GMT on Saturday.

He was believed to be heading west towards Falmouth in Cornwall, a spokesman for Brixham Coastguards said.

Officers are concerned about the safety of the man who is reported to have very little communications or other equipment on board.
