Following the death of a second man off the coast of Torbay in as many days - the area's MP Adrian Sanders has asked the Prime Minister to justify the closure of the nearby coastguard station.

The Torbay lifeboat was called to Princess Pier last night after the man was spotted face down in the water. Despite emergency first aid he later died and police are now investigating. It follows the death of a fisherman in heavy seas the day before.

The two deaths were today raised at Prime Minister's questions.
