A body has been pulled from a harbour in Devon after being found in the sea.

The alarm was raised by a boat which spotted the body near Ilfracombe at about 09:30 BST. Swansea Coastguard was called and the body was recovered by a lifeboat.

Devon and Cornwall Police said the body was of a man believed to be in his 30s or 40s, but there were not thought to be any suspicious circumstances.

The body, yet to be identified, was taken to North Devon District Hospital.

Police said it was believed the body was not badly decomposed, indicating that it might not have been in the water for long.
