A man has stranded himself on a small island to raise money for charity.

Lee Hodge, from Portreath, returned to the mainland yesterday lunchtime after 48 hours on Gull Rock.

Armed with just a cool box, camping stove and a kayak, he says he passed the time waving to passing kayakers and drying out his clothes (it rained both nights!)

Lee decided he wanted to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care after losing his stepfather to cancer. He raised more than £2000.

He says he hasn't stopped the fundraising and he's planning a skydive next.
