Men-of-war discovered on Cornish beaches

Beach-goers in Cornwall are being warned about an unusual visitor to the county which can deliver a powerful sting.

Portuguese men-of-war, which are normally a resident of warmer waters, are being washed up along the coastline.

A boy, Dawud Lee, needed hospital treatment after being stung.

He said it felt like "a little knife going into my foot".
