A British skydiver feared drowned in Thailand after a freak wind blew him out to sea is a veteran with more than 700 jumps behind him, his parachute club said last night.

Stephen O'Brien was one of 14 parachutists taking part in an aerial display above a Thailand beach resort when he was blown up to three miles from the coast by a strong gust on Tuesday.
