Witnesses report seeing a string of explosions on a boat in south east Cornwall.

Crews from Torpoint, Looe and St Austell were called to Milbrook on Wednesday night, after reports of a fire.

Nobody is believed to have been on board.

Reports gas canisters could have been involved have not been confirmed.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "On receipt of this call, appliances from Torpoint and Looe Fire Stations were mobilised to attend as well as specialist appliances from St Austell Fire Station and two Officers.

"On arrival crews used a Light Portable Pump, hose and a branch which they transferred onto the RNLI rib in order to fight the fire from there. Shortly after crews managed to get the vessel alongside shore-line with the assistance of the RNLI."
