A man has died after being pulled from the water in Newquay.

Emergency crews were scrambled to Towan beach in the early hours of Saturday morning.

A 23 year old was pulled ashore and taken to Treliske - but doctors could not save him.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Just before 3am on Saturday 25th October 2014 police, ambulance and the Coastguard responded to a report of concern for a swimmer at Towan Beach, Newquay.

 
"After conducting a search of the water and beaches in the area a man was found in the water near Great Western beach.
 
"The man was taken to Treliske Hospital via the search and rescue helicopter where sadly he later died.
 
"The deceased is thought to be a 23 year-old man from Cornwall. His next of kin have been informed although he has not been formally identified.
 
"The death is not being treated as suspicious and the police are now investigating on behalf of HM Coroner."
