Two brothers who saved a woman from drowning off Newquay have been honoured for their bravery.

Martin and David Marney fought through 6ft waves at Fistral and stayed with the casualty until the lifeboat arrived.

Now the Royal Life Saving Society has handed the pair a certificate of commendation.

Martin is overwhelmed: "When you're actually out there, you know, it's all out of your control so you don't really think about it until we actually met her. She had given up and she thought that was it so, you think, it's a brilliant thing to have done in your life, to have saved someone.

"We just talked to her as we were trained to do, kept her going and got the ring on her and told her everything was going to be OK. Adrenalin kicks in, you know, she's someone in trouble and you just get in the zone and do what you do."

Lee Heard speaks for the Royal Life Saving Society: "David and Martin had a really advanced version out of the beach lifeguard qualification. Clubs teach locally all over the country where kids can just learn the basics of making the right decisions and then also maybe having the skills to keep themselves safe but also rescue somebody else in that situation."
