Polo enthusiasts have been putting their ponies through their paces today in Newquay. They're training ahead of this weekend's 'Polo on the Beach' event at Watergate Bay. Some of the country's top polo players will be taking part.
t's the first time the free event has been held over the whole weekend.
A surfing contest with a difference gets underway today at Watergate Bay near Newquay. The Legends of the Bay competition is the first to combine stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) and kitesurfing.
Competitors can enter either individual competitions in their favoured sport - a wave jam kitesurf event, or a SUP surf competition - or they can challenge for the coveted title of ‘Legend of the Bay’, which will be awarded to the competitor with the highest combined score from both disciplines.
Whether it's picking up plastic or even old shoes, people across the Westcountry are being encouraged to take part in a national beach cleaning event. The annual Beachwatch Big Weekend sees volunteers clear up litter from more than three hundred beaches around the UK.
The event aims to highlight the amount of rubbish and debris washed up on our shores each day. Our reporter Kathy Wardle has been helping out at one clean up in Cornwall.
