We are urged to visit a lifeguarded beach this weekend as Cornwall basks in the autumn sunshine.

Temperatures are expected to reach around twenty degrees.

Below there is a list of ten beaches the RNLI says will be patrolled.

It comes a week after three people lost their lives at Mawgan Porth - when a group of surfers got into difficulty.

A spokesperson said: "With warm weather and good surf forecast for the South West, the RNLI is urging people to visit an RNLI lifeguarded beach this weekend. If you're planning a trip to the coast, there are still RNLI lifeguards on some beaches in Devon and Cornwall until the end of the half-term holiday on Sunday.

"Head for Praa Sands, Gwithian, Porthmeor, Porthtowan, Perranporth, Fistral, Polzeath, Widemouth, Summerleaze in Cornwall.

"The lifeguards will be on duty from 10am till 5pm today (Friday October 31), Saturday and Sunday, when the season finishes.

"At Fistral, RNLI lifeguards will volunteer their time to patrol the beach every weekend in November, finishing on Sunday 30 November."
