One person is in a critical condition in hospital after a boat capsized in a Devon lake, as a search operation to find two others missing continues.

Six people are thought to have been in the vessel when it turned over on Roadford Lake in Lewdown, Okehampton on Wednesday afternoon.

Four people were rescued, with two taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth for treatment.

One has been discharged but the other remains in hospital in a critical condition, Devon and Cornwall Police said.

The other two were checked over and discharged by paramedics at the scene.

However, two people remain missing and police-led searches have now resumed.

A road closure was put in place and the lake will remain closed for the "foreseeable future".

The missing people have not yet been publicly identified but police said they are "supporting the families of all those involved".
