A Carnforth canoeist sparked a rescue alert when he capsized while riding in the Arnside tidal bore.

The 34-year-old was providing cover for a 25-year-old paddleboarder when he got the wrong side of the incoming waves which tipped him out.

Arnside Coastguard was ready to jet ski to help the pair but they managed to make it safely ashore on Sunday.
