Nick Devenney - reunited with lost Go-Pro

Reunited: Brightlingsea paddleboarder's lost Go-Pro found in Cornwall

When Brightlingsea resident Nick Devenney lost his Go-Pro camera while paddleboarding while on holiday in Cornwall, he didn't expect to see it again.

But he reckoned without a local detectorist who found the Go-Pro and tracked Nick down thanks to an East of England Paddlesports group hoody he was wearing in one of the videos on the camera.

Six weeks after the device floated away off Polzeath in July, Nick, 38, received a Facebook message asking "have you recently lost a Go-Pro on a beach in Cornwall" from 71-year-old St Teath detectorist Chris Osborne, who located the camera during one of his regular searches of Polzeath beach.

Mr Osborne looked up the paddlesports group on Facebook, and from there managed to identify Nick, who said that the effort taken to reunite him with the £350 camera "blew me away".

"It just goes to show we still do have a lot of good and genuine people in the world," he said, adding that he has taken steps to ensure that the camera doesn't go missing again on future outings.
