He said: "The focus at the time was not to get relegated to the Conference league.

"It was very much keeping the ship afloat at that point."

Hundreds of Argyle fans are expected to line the streets of Plymouth as the city hosts an open-top bus parade to celebrate the club's promotion back into League One.

Argyle narrowly missed out on the League Two title at the weekend, after drawing 1-1 at Grimsby Town.

Andy Farrant walked past the scene at New Polzeath in north Cornwall after an elderly driver had been freed from the car that plummeted 60ft off a cliff.

"The patient was on the beach of the nearby cove and has been put in the air ambulance.

"The tide was coming in and there's quite a light breeze but the sea conditions were calm."

"At half-time the boys were not in shell shock, but they knew they'd been in a game," he told BBC Radio Cornwall. "They [Surrey] were winning some of the collisions but it's a new team - it does take a while to gel, but they have to gel before next week now," he added.

Premiership standard scary, says Baxter

James Law

BBC Sport Online

Exeter head coach Rob Baxter says it is "scary" that his side needed a record-breaking eight bonus-point wins in a row to seal a home play-off semi-final.

They finished the regular Premiership season on a 15-game unbeaten run, but only secured second on the final day.

"It shows you the quality of the Premiership and how well we've had to do," Baxter told BBC Radio Devon. "It's still a bit scary when you look back and think. If any one of those eight successive bonus-point wins had been losses, we might well be sitting here in third and going away in the semi-final."  

Fans to gather at Home Park ahead of parade

BBC Radio Devon

Plymouth Argyle fans will be gathering at Home Park soon to help decorate the open top buses ahead of the Pilgrim's promotion parade later.
