A man has plunged to his death during a raid on a yacht in the Isles of Scilly.

It happened when officers from the Border Force went aboard the boat, moored in St Mary's harbour on Monday night.

The Dutch national in his sixties fell from the mast.

He was airlifted to hospital by a helicopter from Culdrose but died from his injuries.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The matter has been referred to the IPCC by the Border Force and a local investigation will be carried out this morning."

In a series of tweets, a spokesperson for St Mary's harbour said: "Access to the quay remains restricted this morning as a result of a police investigation into an incident yesterday evening.

"Harbour staff are facilitating the police with their investigation and will endeavour to open the quay fully as soon as we can.

"We apologise for any inconvenience & thank you for your understanding at this time."
