Belgian fisherman missing off north Devon sparks search

A search has taken place for a man who fell overboard from a Belgian fishing vessel off the north Devon coast.

The Padstow lifeboat was called out on Saturday evening to help in the search for the man.

Falmouth coastguard was involved in co-ordinating the search, 12 miles off Hartland Point, along with the coastguard at Swansea.

The man has not been found and Falmouth coastguard said the search has now been stood down.
