Five rescued from six-man liferaft off Cornwall

Five sailors have been airlifted from a liferaft off the north Cornwall coast : they had been adrift at sea for seven days

Coastguards believe the group abandoned their converted trawler after getting into trouble after leaving Kenmare Bay, Co Kerry, Ireland for Le Havre in France.

The three men and two women called for help when the life raft drifted into mobile phone range. They are being treated for hypothermia in hospital.
