A pollution alert has been issued by environmental charity Surfers Against Sewage for Coryton Cove beach due to sewage being discharged into the water.

'Storm overflows' allow water companies to redirect water from heavy rainfall into rivers and the sea to prevent flooding on land.

However, this means that raw, untreated sewage can end up in the water.

The warning reads: "Dawlish Coryton Cove Pollution Alert: Storm sewage has been discharged from a sewer overflow in this location within the past 48 hours."

The same warning is in place for the beaches at Holcombe, Teignmouth Town, and Shaldon.
