There is a U-turn in plans to protect Porthtowan's dunes.

Around half of the Christmas trees supposed to stop sand drifting will be ripped up, after some locals complained.

Now sand will also be put back on the beach, in a bid to get it back to normal.

Jack O'Shea is from the Porthtowan Dune Community Group, he said: "We rely a lot on holiday people coming down here, if people come down and see a beach denuded of sand and the Christmas trees, they are going to think twice about coming here again when they can go somewhere else and not have those problems.

"I see why they are there, I know why they are there, if they had been put in, in the right place in the first place, I think we wouldn't be where we are now, we wouldn't have the problems we have now."
