A Cornish comedian's video about Carlyon Bay has sparked a protest about the state of the beach.

Kernow King's ten minute film about memories of former music venue Cornwall Coliseum has had more than 50,000 views on YouTube.

Frustrated locals held a march on Wednesday, calling on developers to clean up the stretch of sand.

Carlyon Bay has been at the heart of a long running planning dispute over re-development of the land.

Commercial Estates Group have recently admitted work is on hold due to the economic climate.

Jon Kenny, development director for CEG, said he understood that some people felt frustrated by the fact that the beach was still a building site.  

"When we bought the land in 2002 the main Coliseum building was already derelict and closed to the public.  Our aim to start build as soon as possible has been hampered by nearly 10 years of planning delays and now we are in the midst of this difficult economic downturn.

"During this period we've accommodated visitors to the beach by providing public toilets, a disabled vehicle, and a viewing platform, maintaining parking facilities and offering a dog waste collection service and we intend to continue to manage the beach so it's safe for the public to access and use.  

"Realistically it's a brownfield building site that has been stalled by economic circumstances and we have to manage that process as best we can."
