Body of Norfolk windsurfer Chris Bamfield found in Sweden

The body of a windsurfer who went missing in November has been discovered in Sweden.

Chris Bamfield, 65, was last seen at Hunstanton, Norfolk on 14 November.

His sail and board were found off the Norfolk coast, but it is understood his body was carried across the North Sea.

A funeral was held for Mr Bamfield, from Middleton, on Tuesday after his body was “recently found in Sweden”, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said.

On the day of the funeral, former colleagues at King’s Lynn & West Norfolk Borough Council held a minute’s silence for the retired executive director, and buildings across King’s Lynn were lit up.
