We are being warned of the dangers on Cornwall's beaches.

It is as the storms have eroded sand dunes, leaving sheer drops and created new rip currents along the coast.

Lifeguard duty has begun for the Easter holidays and it is expected to be a busy season.

Patrol begun on Fistral beach in Newquay from Saturday 5th April until will continue until the end of October.

Over the two week Easter school holidays they will be at Praa Sands, Gwithian, Porthmeor, Porthtowan, Perranporth, Harlyn, Polzeath and Widemouth.

Over the four day Easter bank holiday weekend they will also be at Watergate, Hayle Towans, Sennen, Towan, Constantine and Summerleaze.

RNLI Lifeguard Manager Steve Instance: "Where you expect safe swimming conditions could be considerably different, we have had a lot of new channels carved in the sand which could cause rip currents and make currents stronger, but our real concern and our main concern for this year are the steep sand cliffs.

"Keep well away from the sand cliffs, they are not a good place to play, not a good place to go either on top or underneath, they are unstable, they will collapse, and if they collapse you have got no chance of survival."
