'SpaceX rocket' debris found in sea off Isles of Scilly

A large chunk of an American space rocket has been found in the sea off the Isles of Scilly.

A large section of a spacecraft, measuring about 10m (32ft) by 4m (13ft), was spotted on the surface between Bryher and Tresco.

Coastguards believe it is from the unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 which exploded after take-off in Florida in June.

Local boatmen towed the section to Tresco where it is under guard on the beach.

John O'Shea reports.
