Cornwall RNLI crew spots fisherman in rough seas

A fisherman has been treated for hypothermia after being rescued by a lifeboat crew in rough seas.

Footage shot by rescuers shows the moment they spotted the angler, who had fallen off rocks near Tintagel Head in Cornwall.

Andy Cameron, who is an helmsman for RNLI Port Issac, told the BBC: "He was lucky it was New Year's Eve, as there were families out walking and saw him in the water."
