A woman rescued from the sea off Croyde has died.
The woman, thought to be in the area with a group from Bristol, had been swept out to sea.
She was found after a two hour search by the coastguard helicopter and lifeboat crews and airlifted to North Devon District Hospital, but attempts to revive her failed.
Police believe she was in North Devon on holiday with her family and was either surfing or swimming when the tragedy happened.
