“With the support of Weston-super-Mare Coastguard Rescue Team, RNLI Portishead and Avon Fire and Rescue Service we determined that the safest way to recover him was to use the coastguard rescue helicopter from St Athan.

“Once recovered he was landed at the Salthouse Field and transferred to a waiting ambulance.”

The team thanked home owners along Marine Parade as well as those in the Pier Hotel apartments and pier staff for their help.
