A man has tried to break into Coastguard cars in Cornwall, while the crews were in the middle of a rescue.

The Porthleven Coastguard Rescue Team were scrambled to Hendra at Praa Sands on Boxing Day.

They were looking after a casualty and clearing the beach for a helicopter landing zone when the attempted break-in happened.

Posting on Facebook, they said a man fled the scene after trying one door and finding an elderly lady sat inside.

"On the 26th December the team were called to hendra (praa sands ) .

"Whilst the team were busy looking after the causality and clearing the beach for a helicopter landing zone, a lovely gentleman decided to try the doors of most of the team's cars.

He actually tried to get into one but was amazed to come across an elderly lady sat in side, when he then quickly left the scene".
