As the summer draws to a close, the number of lifeguards on Cornish beaches is falling.

RNLI lifeguards are ending their services on some stretches of sand in Cornwall and Devon for the winter.

A number of popular beaches will continue to be patrolled for the rest of September, including Godrevy, Polzeath, Holywell Bay, Gyllyngvase, Sennen and Croyde.

Some will see lifeguard cover through to October, half term and in to November.

They will continue to be kept family friendly and safe for surfers.

RNLI lifeguard Phil Drew said: "The sea is not a swimming pool, you have to take care at any time of the year. At this time of year we do get stronger ground swells coming in through September and October. The temperature starts to drop away and you are more prone to winds which could cause hypothermia. There is a definite change in to winter and people do need to be aware of that."

There is a free Beach Finder app which makes it easy to find your nearest lifeguarded beach.
