One person is missing after a small tug boat sank 45 miles off the Lizard in Cornwall.

Two of the three crew of the Aquarius have been airlifted from a life raft after Falmouth coastguards received a call for help at about 06:45 BST.

French coastguards are co-ordinating the incident.

The vessel, which is believed to be British registered, was en route from La Coruna in northern Spain to Plymouth in Devon.
