VIDEO: Surgeon Among Those Drowned At Mawgan Porth

(Updated 7:16am 28th October 2014)
It has come out one of the men who died in the Mawgan Porth tragedy was a surgeon who had tried to pull others to safety.
Dad of four Stuart Calder was on holiday in Cornwall with his family when he got caught in a rip current.
Friends say it was "absolutely characteristic" of the 52 year old to try to help.
Mr Calder worked at Leeds hospital and was involved in teaching and training junior surgeons.
He and two other adults were pulled from the water on Sunday afternoon, but they could not be saved.
An off duty lifeguard from Devon has described how he gave Mr Calder CPR until emergency crews arrived.
Brendon Prince: "We ran to the first person and dragged them out of the water with one or two other people helping.
"The gentleman was a 52 year old male. Obviously we sent for a defibrillator and paramedics as soon as we could.
"We then did CPR on the male for 20 minutes before the emergency services arrived and, obviously, the air ambulance was first on the scene."
The names of a man and woman in their forties from St Austell have not yet been released.
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The deaths are not being treated as suspicious as such police are investigating on behalf of the Coroner.
"As part of this investigation police will be at Mawgan Porth Village Hall, October 28th from 11am until 2pm.
"We would encourage anyone who feels they may have information that could assist the investigation to call into the village hall and speak to officers."
The RNLI has released lifeboat footage of the search and rescue operation on Sunday afternoon.
