Tributes are paid to Cornish crews battling Ebola.

Duchy aircrews, sailors and marines from Plymouth are moored off Sierra Leone.

They are dishing out training and supplies from Falmouth's RFA Argus.

Tina from the Pirate FM breakfast show's husband JB is heading up an operation based in Ghana.

He says one of the most useful resources in the fight are the Merlin helicopters from Culdrose.

He said: "They enable to get people out into the jungle where we can understand the problem better in Sierra Leone, and bring effect to there much more quickly, and to get a grip of this disease, shape it and then deal with it.

"That force for good activity requires every bit as much courage, and if anyone is thinking should they volunteer to come out to Sierra Leone and be a healthcare worker, then that courage is every bit the same and every bit as special."
