Two youngsters have been reunited with their parents after a search operation around Fowey.

Both the town's lifeboats, coastguard and police were scrambled when the kayakers failed to arrive back on Sunday evening.

After searching for nearly an hour the kayakers were found safe and well at Lostwithiel. 

They had left Lostwithiel at 2.30pm to kayak to Fowey but with a strong wind and tide against them, had turned back after reaching St Winnow. 

Due to a problem with mobile telephones they were unable to contact the parents who then called the RNLI.

The mechanic on duty, Paul Gamble said, "The RNLI are always ready to assist in the search for overdue persons and it is better to be called sooner rather than later and especially while there is still daylight."
