One person's been taken to Treliske after being rescued from Mount's Bay by Penlee lifeboat.

He was suffering from hypothermia after the rib he was in broke down.

He was with another man in the inflatable off Marazion when they had trouble with their engine.

Two people have sparked a sea search after being reported missing at Porth.

One of Newquay's lifeboats spotted the couple and got them to safety after they were cut off by the tide.

They had been trapped between Porth and Watergate Bay for around six hours.

The alarm was raised by the woman's mum.

Meanwhile a fisherman has been pulled to safety using rope - after getting stranded near Port Gaverne.

His boat broke down in rough seas as he tried to reach pots at Cartway Cove.

Rocks meant Port Isaac lifeboat could not reach him - so coastguard teams scrambled to rescue him.
