Cornwall's lifeguards brace for a busy bank holiday.

Full time patrols are back up and running at 18 beaches.

Last year teams dealt with over six thousand incidents and saved 24 lives.

Martin Ward from the RNLI in Perranporth told Pirate FM crews are there for a reason: "You're dealing with nature, it's the environment. When these sometimes come together it may look beautiful but we've got to restrict into a safe area and we just like to advice really and prevent people getting into difficulties.

"Prevention is key to us so, if we can prevent the incident occurring in the first place, then we've done our job. If the red flag is up, it's up for a good reason. Not every part of this beach is suitable for swimming on and we pick the best part."

On Saturday, RNLI lifeguards will begin their full time summer season safety patrols on the following beaches; Sharrow, Praa Sands, Gwithian, Hayle Towans, Porthmeor, Sennen, Porthtowan, Perranporth, Fistral, Towan, Watergate Bay, Treyarnon, Constantine, Harlyn, Polzeath, Widemouth and Summerleaze.
