An investigation was launched yesterday after the body of a man was found at the foot of cliffs at Ilfracombe in North Devon.

Devon and Cornwall Police and coastguards responded after the body was found at 2.20pm and came after a woman had called police when she discovered personal items on a footpath at Beacon Point.

The lifeboat and police helicopter were launched at the request of the police as the body could only be accessed by the water.

A police spokesman said the body had not yet been identified and that inquiries were under way to assess whether it was a "crime scene, accident or suicide".
