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.
