A tall ship carrying 36 teenagers is being towed into Falmouth after it lost both its masts in a storm.

The Polish-registered training ship Fryderyk Chopin, which got into difficulties in gale forfce winds yesterday, is due to arrive in the port tomorrow morning.

It is being towed by Newlyn-based fishing boat Nova Spiro.

The ship ran into problems 100 miles south west of the Isles of Scilly.

No one in the 47-strong crew - which includes the 36 teenagers all aged 14 - has been reported as injured.
