The search for a British man reported missing in Australia after an evening swim is on-going, but has been scaled down.

Emergency services are looking for the man at the South Curl beach in Sydney, where he vanished on Saturday.

The 31-year-old decided to go for a swim at about 19:00 local time.

"It's well known locally that it has a fairly consistent and strong rip along the beach which could carry you out," said inspector Pickering.

The man had been in Australia for a week and had been fishing with a friend.

When he did not return his friend called emergency services, who began the search.

"The search hasn't been completely called off. We are conducting a search again today using a number of resources but we will be continuing regular patrols, said Pickering.

"From local experience, I'd probably say it's one of the more treacherous of our beaches."
