Search and rescue helicopter St. Ives RNLI and the Coast Guard found the body near Hell’s Mouse, a group of cliffs in the southwestern part of the county, as police helped the search this morning.
Death is treated as unexplained and is not suspicious. Cornwall live I will report.
Hell’s Mouse is about eight miles from Carvis Bay, where world leaders gather, but there is currently no indication that the incident is related to the event.
A spokesperson for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said: “Today (June 11th) at around 11:15 am, the Devon and Cornwall police in the North Cliff area requested the support of the HM Coast Guard.
“The Portreath Coast Guard rescue team and the St. Ives RNLI lifeboat were sent along with a search and rescue helicopter from New Key.”
According to a statement from Devon and Cornwall police, “Police appeared in an area near Bassett Cove in Cornwall after the body was found around 11:30 am.
“Coast Guard and RNLI colleagues also assisted police on the scene.
“Police are currently treating death as unexplained, but it is believed that there are no suspicious situations.”
Hell’s Mouth is a group of cliffs just opposite St Ives Bay from Carvis Bay.
They are accessible via the South West Coast Path, which runs further northeast past Godrevy, a vast sandy beach with dramatic coves.
Godrevy is a tourist hotspot on the National Trust.
