Pendennis Shipyard removes 'world's largest' yacht mast
A team of 40 people and four cranes have removed what is believed to be the world's biggest mast from a sailing ship in Falmouth.
The M5's mast is 292ft (89m) tall and weighs 45 tonnes, making it the world's largest, a spokesperson from Pendennis Shipyard has said.
The mast has been removed so the yacht can undergo a 13 month refit.
