Open verdict returned on Robert Geach drowning

Robert Geach drowned after falling into a tank at a sewage treatment works in Falmouth in 2013

A jury has returned an open verdict into the death of Robert Geach.

He was pulled from a filtration tank at South West Water's sewage treatment works in Falmouth two years ago.

The 54 year old, who worked for the water company, was found inside the tank in December 2013.

South West Water has said that since the father-of-two's death they have made safety changes.



Basking sharks arrive in Cornwall earlier than expected

The first basking sharks of 2015 have been spotted arriving near Falmouth.

They turn up near Cornwall's southern coastline every year but are not normally seen until the middle of May.

However our increasingly warmer waters are luring them earlier and it is thought the recent warm weather may have prompted the arrival of these two sharks.

The sharks were filmed on Wednesday at Cadgwith and Coverack off the Lizard peninsula on the southern tip of Cornwall.
