The death of a man on a Cornish beach in the early hours of this morning is not being treated as suspicious.

Emergency services were called to Towan Beach in Newquay just before 2am after the man, a tourist from Hampshire who was in his early 30s, was found collapsed and not breathing.

Attempts were made to resuscitate him, but he died at the scene.

Anyone who may have seen the man late on Friday night or early Saturday morning in the vicinity of Towan beach is asked to call police on 101.
