Blackpool to New Brighton kiteboarders finish ‘amazing’ ride

Two men have had an “exhilarating” ride down the north-west coastline on their kiteboards.

Justin Evans and Trevor Pitt are the first people to complete the 28-mile kitesurf from Blackpool to New Brighton, Merseyside, reaching up to 40mph.

Mr Pitt said “there were a few hairy bits” but the two-hour trip was “amazing”.
