Surfers have said that there is untreated sewage in the sea off Porthleven, and that it has been making them ill. People affected have complained of a range of symptoms, including stomach upsets. Surfer and beach cleaner Aidan Botha said surfers often saw human waste at sea. He said, “Given that Porthleven’s one of the prime surf spots in the UK, it’s something you wouldn’t expect in this day and age.” Mr Botha said he carried out a beach clean every week and would often find sanitary products there. One man, Mitch Holmes, said he was off work for a month after a wound on his arm became septic after he surfed at Porthleven earlier this year. He said his whole arm swelled up. South West Water said the local waste treatment works in the area were working. The Environment Agency said it was investigating, and was aware of “sewage-related debris” in the harbour. When the weather was drier, contractors would try to trace the cause of any problems.

This week, Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said it was “likely” the novel coronavirus will become an epidemic in the UK. He told BBC Breakfast that up to 80% of the population could be infected “in the worst case scenario”. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that the government will “bring forward measures to allow the payment of statutory sick pay from the very first day you are sick instead of four days under the current rules.” Referring to self-isolation, he said, “Nobody should be penalised for doing the right thing.”

Harry Billinge, a 94-year-old D-Day veteran from St Austell, has been appointed an MBE for services to charitable fundraising. He raised more than £25,000 towards the cost of building a national memorial honouring his fallen comrades. He said he was accepting the honour in memory of the “fellas that never came back”. He was presented with the honour by the Queen during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Mr Billinge was 18 when he landed on Gold Beach on June 6, 1944. He said, “It was hell on earth. Murder. The sea was red with blood, human blood.” Speaking after the ceremony, Mr Billinge said it was “wonderful” to meet the Queen. “She was very, very kind. There are no words to describe it.” Mr Billinge also holds France’s highest award, the Légion d’honneur. In June 2019 he travelled to Normandy to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Cornish Pirates forwards coach Alan Paver hopes his side will not repeat their second-half performance as they won 21-15 against Nottingham last Sunday. The Pirates lead 21-3 at half-time, but conceded two tries after the break. “It was pretty painful watching the last 30 minutes,” Mr Paver said. The win allowed the Pirates to consolidate third place in the Championship.
