Five days after a mum was swept to her death in Cornwall, we are urged to use a lifeguarded beach this weekend.

Cover had been lifted at Northcott Mouth just hours before the woman in her 50's drowned trying to save her sons.

But the RNLI says it is still on duty at more than 40 places in the Duchy.

Steve Instance is from the charity:

"There are still plenty of beaches throughout Cornwall which have lifeguard cover and will have until the end of September. There are a number of beaches then which will have lifeguard cover through to the end of October half term. So we do provide choice, we provide plenty of options for people to bathe and surf safely".

"Flags indicate that there are lifeguards there and that there is help. We don't want to confuse people. We want to keep that message simple. If there are no flags, there are no lifeguards, so we would advise going and finding a different beach"
