Lifeguard cover at most of Cornwall's beaches will end this weekend.

Patrols are being stood down for the winter.

The RNLI are urging us to stay safe.

Water users are being warned to know their limits, check conditions and tell someone where they're going in.

Lifeguards have helped rescue over 10, 500 people in the South West this summer.

RNLI Manager, Steve Instance, said: "We have seen an increase in people using the beaches all year round, which is why now our lifeguards start at Easter and finish at the end of October on a number of beaches."

Cornwall's beaches that are remaining patrolled until late October are: Gwithian, Porthcurno, Widemouth, Summerleaze, Polzeath, Perranporth, Porthtowan, Praa Sands.

They will all have weekend cover through October and full-cover over half term.

Fistral will have cover through October, over half term and volunteer patrols at weekends through November.
