A Cornish beach where a mother died trying to rescue her two sons was unguarded. Lifeguard cover there had only been lifted a day before the tragedy. The mother was swept out to sea. See Kathy Wardle's full report:
Locals say there had been rip currents at the beach in the past week and warning notices have been put up. The boys, aged 11 and 13 survived.
The family got into difficulty on Northcott Mouth beach near Bude. The RNLI say it will be reviewing its operational hours.
