There is a warning that Cornwall is facing a huge bill to make its beaches safe.

Officials in Perranporth were told to block old mine workings after a schoolgirl fell to her death on holiday.

Now they claim it will set an expensive precedent.

Dave Webster from Perranzabuloe Parish Council says a whole can of worms has been opened: "It does open up a very significant legal precedent that this now has to happen all over the entirety of Cornwall and I don't think that Cornwall Council really thought that through before they started this.

"Porthtowan Beach is a good example, because Porthtowan Beach is managed by Cornwall Council. There are mines and adits there that are far more dangerous than anything we have on our beach. They're easy to access, there's a significant risk of roof fall."
