A Royal Marine has leapt into the Tamar to save a woman who plunged from the ferry.

The passenger, who was travelling with her daughter from the Devonport side, went overboard just after 7.30pm on Monday evening.

The ferry put out a mayday, while the off duty Marine grabbed a lifejacket and jumped into the water.

Her rescuer kept the woman in her late thirties afloat until an MoD launch arrived to get them to Derriford.

They are thought to have been in the water for less than five minutes.

The Marine is believed to have been on his way home.

The Torpoint ferry was up and running again shortly afterwards.
