Beach sealed off after 'incendiary' found at Newquay

Police have sealed off a Cornwall beach after a suspected incendiary device was washed ashore.

The alarm was raised just before 1300 GMT after a member of the public found the device on Watergate Bay, Newquay.

Cafes and shops close to the beach have been evacuated, including Jamie Oliver's 15 restaurant.

The bomb squad has been called in to assess the situation and determine whether the device can be removed or will have to be destroyed.
