A rescue operation is underway in Fowey harbour.

It is after tug, the Cormilan, hit rocks in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

She was heading out alone for a job in Plymouth when it happened.

Fire crews have been called in to help pump her out.

The crew is OK and there is no pollution.

Harbour authorities say the boat is in a "stable" condition.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "At 04:14 Cornwall FRS received a 999 reporting a vessel taking water after striking rocks.

"Appliances from Fowey and St Austell and an Officer are currently in attendance assisting with the removal of water from the engine compartment of a tug vessel.

"Crews are using a light portable pump, ejector pumps and associated equipment to remove the water."
