Cornwall's reminded to swim at a lifeguarded beach this Easter.

RNLI patrols are starting back up at eight sites over the school holidays.

Last year teams were called out to 54 incidents during the Bank Holiday.

Steve Instance, RNLI Lifeguard manager for the South West, said: "People come down to the beach and just relax, and perhaps sometimes relax just a little bit too much. They don't think that just around the corner something can go horribly wrong.

"If you're aware of the tide times then you'll have a better time because you'll enjoy the beach knowing that you're safe."

Fistral beach in Newquay will have full-time lifeguard cover from 29 March to the end of October, with voluntary weekend patrols throughout November.

Praa Sands, Gwithian, Porthmeor, Porthtowan, Perranporth, Harlyn, Polzeath and Widemouth will be patrolled for the Easter School Holidays (29 March to 14 April) and then every weekend until the summer season begins on 4 May.

Meanwhile, Hayle Towans, Sennen, Towan, Watergate, Constantine and Summerleaze beaches will be watched over from 29 March to 1 April.
