The angler who died after being pulled from the sea off the Lizard has been named.

Coastguards say sixty-five year old Chris Newton could have been in the sea for hours.

A friend raised the alarm when he failed to return to Cadgwith on Wednesday.

The Lizard lifeboat, coastguards and other boats in the area joined in the search of the area.

He was found at around 8pm by survey vessel, Triad, and airlifted to hospital.

But doctors could not save him.

An investigation has been launched into how his solo fishing trip went tragically wrong.

Mr Newton worked as Environment Director on Jersey before returning to Cornwall in 2009.

Wreckage from his boat, Amy Jane, has been recovered and will form part of the investigation.

Police have confirmed it is not being treated as suspicious.
