A daring rescue by a member of the RNAS Culdrose Search and Rescue team has been recognised at this year's Millie Awards. Corporal Justin Morgan was named Britain's Most Outstanding Sailor last night.
He braved 50-foot waves and gale-force winds to rescue a man who had fallen from his yacht in August.
Corporal Morgan was handed his award by Hollywood actors Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne. The event in London is backed by a national newspaper.
