Beaches across England have been seeing high numbers of visitors apparently defying coronavirus concerns.

Cars from "all over the country" were in gridlock in Devon, police said.

In Cornwall, Perranporth beach had hundreds of people on it, while the warm weather also brought people out to Southend seafront in Essex.

In Merseyside, people visited Sefton's beaches despite pleas to stay away, and there was a reported 40-minute queue for a toilet in Skegness.

In Devon, Saunton Sands beach car park, near Braunton, was described as "looking like August", with nearby Woolacombe described as "a particular pinch point" for traffic.

Police warned motorists against abandoning cars elsewhere, saying they should follow advice to avoid becoming trapped on narrow lanes.

Public toilets and other amenities in the area remained closed, drivers were reminded.
