There is a tombstoning warning from the RNLI as Cornwall braces for a heatwave.

Pirate FM has filmed youngsters throwing themselves into a tidal pool flanked by cliffs at Kynance Cove on the Lizard. You can watch the video below.

Simon Hannaford from Fowey lifeboat warns jumping from rocks and piers can cause broken bones, head injuries and even death: "You don't know how much water is underneath when you're jumping in and we've said it so many times, you could break your legs, you could break your back because there's only a couple of feet of water underneath you.

"The temperature of the water in the UK at the moment is much lower than in other years because of the bad weather we've had over the winter so the shock of hitting the water, because a lot of them don't wear wetsuits; they just have trunks on, and we're concerned about body shock."
