A woman has died after becoming trapped in a sea cave off the Dorset coast.
A coastguard rescue team was called to Tilly Whim Caves in Durlston, near Swanage, on Saturday afternoon, after a man swimming with her raised the alarm.
He was winched to safety but the woman, aged 30, had become trapped in the caves at sea level. By the time rescuers reached her she had died.
The man, 31, was unhurt. Rescuers were unable to retrieve the woman’s body as it was deemed “too dangerous”.
