Beach Safety Warning

We are being warned of new dangers on Cornwall's beaches.

It is after the storms eroded sand dunes and created new rip currents.

The RNLI is asking us not to let children play by the so-called 'sand cliffs' in case they collapse.

This as lifeguard duty starts for Easter.

Manager Steve Instance told Pirate FM: "Where you expect safe swimming conditions it could be considerably different. We've had a lot of new channels carved in the sand which have caused rip currents and could make those currents stronger. But our real concern and our main concern is the sand cliffs.

"Keep well away from the sand cliffs. They're not a good place to play, not a good place to go either on top or beneath. They are unstable and they could collapse and if they collapse you have no chance of survival."
