Six crew have been rescued from a fishing vessel stranded in "atrocious" conditions off Lands End.
HM Coastguard was alerted to the incident at around 10pm on Tuesday 12 March.
A French fishing vessel, named La Fanette, suffered an engine failure and was struggling in the conditions created by Storm Gareth.
Storm-force winds and waves of up to 20ft made it "impossible" for rescue teams to establish a tow with the vessel.
Both Sennen Cove and Penlee RNLI were called to assist and the six crew on board the vessel were airlifted by Newquay Coastguard Rescue Helicopter.
Watch 'Saved from the Sea'
Speaking after the rescue, Captain Sharky Finn from Newquay Coastguard helicopter said:
"This is definitely one of the most challenging jobs we’ve seen at Newquay. We were flying into a Force 8 gale with 20ft high waves swirling beneath us and we could clearly see the fishing vessel disappearing beneath the swell as we approached."
He continued: "Needless to say, it was very challenging deck; it stretched the capabilities of both the crew and the aircraft."
The French vessel remains off Lands End and is being monitored by the Coastguard.
