The spokesperson said: “As the first teams arrived on scene it became clear that this was a deceased person.

“We then waited for CID and scenes of crime officers before the body could be recovered by Sidmouth Lifeboat back to Sidmouth for the coroner.

“Our condolences are with the casualty’s family.”
