A man has died following an incident on a fishing boat 50 miles out at sea off Newlyn, Cornwall.

An investigation has started following the incident off the Isles of Scilly in which another crew member was injured, Devon and Cornwall Police said.

Emergency services were called to the fishing boat which was 50 miles off St Mary's on Saturday.

The MAIB said it was running a "safety investigation into a fatal accident".

A lifeboat from St Mary's was called at 06:30 GMT on Saturday and a coastguard helicopter and the Penlee lifeboat attended when the boat got nearer to Newlyn.

The families of the crew involved have been informed.
