Rescue teams are on standby as the sun shines on Cornwall.

It is as hundreds head to the beach while temperatures soar.

RNAS Culdrose is already the busiest search and rescue base in England.

Lieuntenant Commander Dick Calheam tells us what it's like saving lives.

He said: "For me personally I was recently involved in rescuing six French fishermen off the coast of Newquay in quite horrendous conditions in the middle of the night, which often happens, this is something that happens quite regularly and we can be called to do at a moment's notice.

"Whether you are simply going out there to find someone's dog that has fallen off a cliff, or for something more serious, you get back knowing you have saved someone's life, and that is immensely satisfying and rewarding."
