A baby and three other children have been pictured as they were passed to safety by rescuers after their father crashed their sinking boat into rocks to save them.

The brave father was praised for his quick-thinking actions as he protected his family, which included a baby, from danger when their 24ft vessel started to sink.

The family were enjoying a day at sea off the coast of Devon when the boat rapidly took on water.

The father, whose name is unknown, ran the stricken boat aground on rocks near Torquay, Devon, which allowed the family to all get to safety.
