An air ambulance was seen landing on the beach to drop medics off before stationing itself at the clifftop car park and then leaving half an hour later.

A police cordon was put up near the lighthouse and parts of the beach were closed while investigations were under way.

The death is being treated as unexplained but is not believed to be suspicious.

The man's next of kin has been informed and a file will be passed to the coroner
