Mayday call from fishing boat off Devon coast

Three people on board a fishing boat that was taking on water off the Devon coast and gave a mayday call have returned safely.

Those on board the Hannah Beth vessel raised the alarm to coastguards at about 11:00 BST.

The boat was south of Beer Head, near Seaton, and two lifeboats were deployed with another boat sat alongside.

Watch officer Malcolm Wright said all three people onboard returned safely along with the Hannah Beth boat.
