Scenes of chaos have been reported at several tourist hotspots in Devon and Cornwall this week with people flocking to the beaches as temperatures soared.
The beaches across the whole of the South West have been described by the RNLI as “extremely busy” at the moment, with both locals who are holidaying at home this year and an influx of visitors to the region.
Crowds are expected to head to the coast again on Saturday, so Devon Live and Cornwall Live has checked at live webcams at some of the region’s biggest tourist spots this afternoon to see how beaches are currently.
This is what we found:
Jacob’s Ladder, Sidmouth
South Sands, Salcombe
Combe Martin, North Devon
