Pirate FM has learnt joy riders are tearing up a Cornish beauty spot.

The National Trust says it has seen a rise in damage caused by boy racers at Godrevy, near Hayle.

Bosses said it meant the organisation was having to foot the bill for costly repairs to the beach's car parks.

Police have been told and a sign has been put up, asking people to report things like motorists wheel-spinning.


Richard Pope, National Trust Visitor Services Manager for mid and south-east Cornwall, said:

"We haven't got CCTV, we don't want to stop people coming in. People use the beach until late in the evening. Surfers are in early in the morning, the fishermen are in early in the morning, the dog walkers are in early in the morning. We don't want to put a gate up. There's not hundreds of thing we can do that don't have a knock-on effect.

"There's lots of local individuals, might be their neighbours, might be their work colleagues, might be their schoolmates, might be their friends, who use the beach. It would be inconvenient if we were closed for resurfacing, certainly at the busy time of the year that we're in now."
