These locals in Falmouth admit they don't really bother:
One man said: "Only when it's like boiling hot, you whack the sun cream on and that."
This man adds: "If I go down to the beach and it's sunny and I think I might take my top off, I might there's a bit of cream going round, I wouldn't take some myself, I might grab some off someone and put it on."

Sunsafe are launching an app which offers advice on the signs and how to check for them.
Spokesperson Caroline Chapman wants us to stop and think:
"Here in the UK, where our summers are so unpredictable, and that little bit of sunshine, everybody wants to go out, they strip off. Yesterday was a lovely hot day. I saw quite a few people walking around with burn marks on their shoulders and the tops of their cheeks, so it is very easy to get caught out."
