A sea wall in a Cornish village has been further damaged as a result of recent storms.

St Ives MP Andrew George said "another sizeable portion" of the wall in Coverack, in the Lizard area, was damaged on Friday.

Protective railings and granite quoins - or corner blocks - were damaged in the latest slip, he said.

The Falmouth Coastguard Rescue Team said people should "take care in this area".

Liberal Democrat Mr George said the village's main road, on top of the wall, had already been made impassable by an earlier collapse.

He said he had already taken up the concerns of local people with the Environment Agency, Cornwall Council and utility companies.
