Falmouth Coastguard has helped rescue six rowers clinging to a life raft in the north Atlantic.

The five Brits and one Irishman were twenty-seven days into a challenge to get from Morocco to Barbados.

They have been picked up by a cargo ship and are all said to be OK.

Peter Bullard from Falmouth Coastguard said, "For myself personally this is the third Atlantic rowing boat incident I've been involved in for the past six weeks so it is potentially dangerous. This is a little outside our patch by about three thousand miles. But because they are British nationals and are carrying a British beacon we do get involved.
