A woman has been pulled from the sea at Newquay.

Crews were called to the harbour in the early hours of Thursday morning after a fishing boat raised the alarm.

She has been taken to hospital conscious.

It is not clear how she ended up in the water.

Rescue crews tell Pirate FM she is lucky to be alive after a lone fisherman managed to get her onto his boat.

Operations manager at Newquay Lifeboat Gareth Horner said conditions were deadly: "It was flat calm, freezing cold. The fishermen had gone to his moorings in the harbour, got aboard, started the engine, cast off and he just happened to look over his shoulder and he saw this woman in the harbour. He was on his own and it's not easy to get somebody out of the water and into a boat.

"The survival time in the sea at this time of year is not terribly long and at that time of day there's not that many people about so had he not been going to sea at that time then there's every possibility that she wouldn't have made it."
