A holidaymaker who was found collapsed on a beach in Newquay has died.

Police were called to Towan Beach in the early hours of Saturday morning after the man in his thirties was discovered not breathing.

Crews carried out CPR but they could not save him.

Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At just before 2am on Saturday 11th May 2013, police received a report that members of the public had come across a collapsed man not breathing on Towan Beach, Newquay.

"Attempts were made to resuscitate the male but he passed away at the scene.

"The male, in his 30s, has been identified as a visitor to Newquay  from the Hampshire area.

The man's family have been informed, though formal identification is not expected to take place until after the weekend.

"After carrying out an initial investigation officers are treating this as a non-suspicious death at this time.  A file will now be prepared for the coroner.
 
"Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen this man late on Friday night or early Saturday morning, particularly in the vicinity of Towan beach.  Call 101 and quote log 88 of 11 May 2013."
