A MAN, fishing off the Frinton coast, was rushed to hospital after a suspected heart attack.

The Walton RNLI and Walton Coastguard transferred the man from the angling boat, Misty, onto Walton Pier to be transported to Colchester General Hospital just after 10am on yesterday morning.

The man had been fishing, one mile off Frinton, with seven other people at the time.
