Three people have been airlifted from the sea off the Lizard after a kayak capsized.

Two of the rescued people were on board the kayak and a third person had swum out from Kennack Sands beach to help.

They were all winched to safety by a rescue helicopter from RNAS Culdrose.

The group from Hertfordshire are now safe and well after being assessed by a paramedic on the helicopter and by the Porthoustock Coastguards.
