Atlantic Odyssey rowers rescued after capsizing

Six rowers have been rescued from their life raft after capsizing in the Atlantic Ocean during a record attempt.

The crew of the Sara G - five British men and one from the Irish Republic - had been trying to row from Morocco to Barbados in under 30 days.

They were 27 days into their journey when the 36ft (11m) vessel overturned.

Philippa Thomas reports.
