“Perranporth lost about a million tonnes of sand, while nearby St Ives has gained.”

““So far we haven’t seen much recovery,” said Prof Masselink, professor of coastal geomorphology at Plymouth University.”

There are certainly a lot more exposed rocks around Chapel Rock, at the foot of the Droskyn rocks and other areas of the beach.
