Penlee lifeboat was called out on Saturday afternoon to help a kayaker in trouble off Poldhu Cove, near Mullion.

Falmouth coastguard said that a 64-year-old man had fallen out of his kayak and was unable to get back in. The coastguard was alerted by a friend who was in another boat. Both people, experienced kayakers who wore wetsuits and lifejackets, were taken by the lifeboat team to Mullion Cove to be checked by paramedics.

Penlee is one of the busiest RNLI lifeboat stations, with more than 20 callouts over the summer period.
