Report on the news, just wondered if it was anyone on here? Glad the're safe and well:

A father and son have been rescued after being thrown into the sea in Cornwall during a fishing trip on Monday night.

Their 6ft (2m) inflatable dinghy was upended by strong winds and the pair had to swim to shore at Gorran Haven.

The alarm was raised at 0600 BST when they did not returned home to St Austell. They were found after a search by police, lifeboats and coastguards.

They were not injured, but have been treated for hypothermia.

Brixham Coastguard said the dinghy and the two casualties were found at 0740 BST by Mevagissey Coastguard Rescue Team on an inaccessible beach near Gorran Haven where they had spent most of the night.
