A body has been recovered from the sea following a search for a missing fisherman off west Cork.

The discovery was made after a man in his 60s failed to return to Schull from a fishing trip on Monday, a spokesman for Baltimore RNLI said. It is understood the body was found in the sea between Toormore and Goleen.

The 16ft (5m) boat he had set out in, believed to be a type of punt, was found near Long Island on Monday.
