Police searching for missing teenager Harry Martin have said a body has been found.

It is believed the body was retrieved from the sea by a lifeboat.

18-year-old Harry has been missing since he left his home in Membland, Newton Ferrers, around noon on January 2.

It is thought he was going out to take photographs of the stormy weather.

Police made an announcement yesterday that the search for Harry would be scaled back from active to responsive, based on a "completed assessment which highlights that all potential areas for searching have been exhausted".

Friends and family gathered on the coast at 8am this morning to conduct their own search, with 130 people signing up for the unofficial operation.
