Lifeguards are back on a south east Cornwall beach, left without cover.

It is after an insurance row between the RNLI and chalet owners at Tregonhawke.

Now a temporary station has been set up above the high tide line on the beach.

A a six year old had to be airlifted to hospital, after falling onto rocks last weekend.

Local MP Sheryll Murray wants it sorted out once and for all. She said: "One of my concerns now is we are seeing the beaches used more and there could be a really bad injury there, and at the end of the day, that adverse publicity is going to affect South East Cornwall.

"If somebody does get into difficulties, out in the sea, particularly with these very strong rip currents, then minutes matter. I really want to see a resolution to this, albeit perhaps a temporary resolution."
