Police were called to Towan Beach in the early hours of Saturday morning after the man in his thirties was discovered not breathing.

Crews carried out CPR but they could not save him.

Devon and Cornwall Police said: "At just before 2am on Saturday 11th May 2013, police received a report that members of the public had come across a collapsed man not breathing on Towan Beach, Newquay.

"Attempts were made to resuscitate the male but he passed away at the scene.
