A warning has been issued by a charity regarding what it says is sewage polluting seven Cornish beaches following heavy rainfall. 

It follows a video showing storm sewage being pumped into the sea in Sussex going viral - but it's not just south east waters being polluted.

In fact, an interactive map created by environmental campaign group, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), shows discharge points all along the south coast.

Heavy rain over the last few days has been linked to sewage also being emptied at beaches in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and the Isle of Wight.

This is the video posted on social media by Martyn Craddock showing the release into the otherwise blue waters at Seaford.

A spokesperson for SAS said other pollution warnings in place may not be linked to heavy rain, and those visiting the coast are advised to check its interactive map on their website before they swim.

These seven Cornwall locations have all seen sewage emptied into the water over the last 48 hours according  to SAS:

  • Mawgan Porth
  • Watergate
  • Fistral North
  • Long Rock
  • Perranuthnoe
  • Polurrian Cove
  • Seaton
