Rick Stein to open a new restaurant in Fistral

Rick Stein has announced he will open a new restaurant in Fistral this spring.

His family, which include wife Jill and son Edward, are currently working on the interior of the new restaurant, which will join a recently opened business in Porthleven.

It will be located on the iconic beach, famous for having some of the best surf in Europe.

The Stein's flagship Seafood Restaurant in Padstow celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

It’s exciting to be opening a restaurant on Fistral, even my Aussie friends in Sydney know it; some were lifeguards there in the 70s. I imagine the restaurant buzzing with people enjoying a great beach and the sort of food you have to have by the water.

Fistral Beach hit by bathing ban

Bathing has been banned at one of Britain's best known beaches because of dangerous stretches of reef exposed by the winter storms.

The ban, at Fistral Beach in Newquay, will be at high tide and last for four hours every day. There are fears it could be in place into the summer when the beach is packed with tourists and holidaymakers.

Fisherman rescued from water at Fistral Beach

A man's been taken to hospital after being rescued from the sea off Fistral Beach in Newquay. It's believed he'd been fishing from the rocks at the southern end of the beach at around 5 o'clock today.

The man was in the water for around 25 minutes before a lifeguard jet ski reached him. A lifeboat and rescue helicopter were also deployed in the operation to rescue him.
