Coastal erosion will produce more historical discoveries like the remains of shipwrecked sailors, say experts.

It follows the discovery of a skeleton, thought to be from a 17th or 18th Century mariner, in Cornwall.

A number of other sites around England have revealed human remains, buried near where they were washed up.

"Increased storminess and rising sea levels" means we are "more likely" to see further such burials exposed, said Devon county archaeologist Bill Horner.
