Teenagers rescued from Atlantic

Three British teenagers - including one from Kingston - have been rescued from lifeboats in the Atlantic two days after their sailing ship capsized and sank.

They'd each paid £25,000 to join a group for a five month adventure but hit a storm 300 miles off the coast of Brazil six days ago.

The Brazilian Navy's being criticised for being slow in picking up their distress call.
