The incident has been reported to Cornwall Council and Devon and Cornwall Police.

This is not the first time vandalism has appeared at a Cornish beauty spot.

Earlier this month, a section of the South West Coast Path near Looe was vandalised with hateful words towards visitors, too.

Both residents and visitors have expressed their "disgust" at the growing animosity towards holidaymakers.

It calls for a higher levy on second home tax, to help build affordable homes for locals.
