Dinghy boy, 10, rescues sailors from capsized yacht

A 10-year-old boy is being hailed a hero after rescuing a couple whose boat capsized in the sea off Devon.

Stuart Crang rowed his 8ft (2.4m) dinghy to rescue canoe instructor Richard Brown, and his partner Sue Taffler, after they got into difficulties when sailing near Brixham.

He then towed their water-filled yacht back to shore in a trip that took 30 minutes, sometimes against the tide.
