The RNLI in Cornwall is worried that people are putting their lives at risk by ignoring safety advice on the beach.

Pirate FM has learnt last weekend, there were 20 rescues at Perranporth alone.

Bosses reckon the total around our coast was more than 100.

Spokesman Steve Instance said: "There was one incident on the north Cornish coast; two lads were rescued in the morning, given advice on rip currents, told where they should be body boarding, only for the lifeguards to rescue them again in the afternoon."
