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.
