It has been revealed today that it will cost millions of pounds to repair Cornwall's battered coast, with many hugely popular coastal paths remaining closed to walkers well into the main holiday season.
This will come as a blow to tourism officials in the county, keen to promote the country as open for business.
18 paths are currently closed after 35 'significant' cliff falls in Cornwall since November last year, mainly on the South West Coast Path. One option being considered is to rebuild part of the path further inland.
