A holidaymaker left clinging to cliffs after being cut off by rising tides in Cornwall claims there were not enough warnings.

Stacey Heyes had to be rescued by helicopter crews at Porthcurno last week.

She is calling for more beach signs spelling out the risks.

But people at Carbis Bay were not so sure. One told Pirate FM: "I think people will wander out into the beach and probably disregard signs in any event. If you're a stranger to an area, you're not to know how high the tide comes. I don't think people do that sort of research before they come on a beach holiday, they're just thinking sea, sunshine and sand".
