Joe Wicks was stranded after his jet board broke down.
Anti-plastic pollution campaigner Oly Rush from Project Planet said, “We had been alerted to some plastic pollution at Bats Head near Lulworth and were on our way to pick it up in Sea Rex when we happened to see Joe Wicks who needed to be rescued.
“Smarties lids and Lego pieces are a rare treat to us beach cleaning folk to find now and again, but there’s only one Joe Wicks! What a legend.
He’d broken down and we spotted him. It just so happened to be his birthday too.
“We are pleased to say he’s safe and well.”
A relieved Joe Wicks was quick to thank the guys via social media for picking him up.
Sea Rex is the boat purchased specifically for the environmental groups’ beach cleaning efforts after Oly’s mammoth fundraising Jurassic Coast swim last year.
