Full report: Torquay Fisherman's death

It's thought a fisherman who died off the South Devon coast in gale force winds wasn't wearing a lifejacket or an emergency radio beacon. A huge air and sea search was launched last night after the fishing boat failed to return to Torquay harbour.

A body was recovered by lifeboats this morning. Many people from the local fishing community joined in the search - tonight they are left mourning the loss of one of their own. Watch John Andrews report.
