Father and daughter rescued from fog near Padstow

A man and his five-year-old daughter were guided back to shore after becoming lost in their boat in thick fog off Padstow last night. Falmouth Coastguards received an emergency call out at 6:20pm

We always urge people to check the weather before they set off, just in case they get caught out in fog like this evening. You also need make sure all your communications equipment on board is working so you can call for help if needed. We also want to take this opportunity to remind people to wear a lifejacket. It's useless unless worn, and could save your life."
