Calls to take down Carlyon Bay sea defences

Objectors have called for the removal of sea defences at a Cornish beauty spot.

The 80 metres of defences at Carlyon Bay in south east Cornwall are protecting an information centre.

It's linked to a proposed £250 million development which it's hoped will be started in 2016.

But more than 700 people have signed a petition calling for the defences to be removed.
