Sea conditions improving as search continues for missing tourist off Kerry coast

About 40 people, including several units of the Coastguard, are continuing to comb the coastline around Kerry Head in search of a missing fisherman.

The Chinese tourist had been fishing with friends there yesterday afternoon when he was swept off the rocks by a wave.

Last night, angling gear was recovered near the scene.

Sea conditions are said to be difficult but improving, and the search will continue until nightfall, to resume tomorrow morning.
