A suspected cliff fall that has left a Newquay schoolboy fighting for his life at Derriford sparks a police appeal.

Connor Simmonds was found on the beach at Whipsiderry.

His rucksack was found on the path above.

Officers want to hear from anyone who might have seen what happened to the 16 year old on Tuesday morning.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "Police are appealing for information following a teenage boy who fell from a cliff in Newquay and remains in a critical condition.

"16 year old Connor Simmonds is believed to have fallen down a cliff after being located on Whipsiderry Beach at around 11am on Tuesday 14th October.

"Connor is a sixth form pupil at Treviglas School, St Columb Minor, and police are appealing to anybody who saw Connor on Tuesday morning between 8.30am and 11am to come forward.

"Connor was wearing blue jeans, a yellow t-shirt and a green and grey jumper and was possibly wearing a black baseball cap. Connor's rucksack had been found at the top of the cliff above Whipsiderry Beach, Porth, Newquay.

"If anybody saw Connor on Tuesday morning or has any other information regarding this incident please contact Devon and Cornwall Police by phoning 101 quoting enquiry EN/149482/14."
