    Councillor Tim Dwelly, leader of the Labour Group at Cornwall Council, said Cornwall Council Labour would continue to "oppose the Tory government's withdrawal of funding" from the county and "its refusal to recognise our low earnings and remote location".

    "We will however work constructively with anyone who tries to minimise the damage done by this decision and who shares our vision of more investment in Cornwall, better paid jobs and decent services. Our economy and our children's prospects need all these things", he said.

  15. Environmental campaigners concerned about future after Brexit

    BBC Spotlight

    Many environmental campaigners claim the EU has done much to protect the countryside, our rivers, the air we breathe and the state of our seas.

    Fishing boats

    They say they are concerned about the uncertainty that lies ahead and fear greater commercial exploitation.

    Most fishermen think they have a lot to gain from this result and hope to take back control of  what they see as “our waters” but that might not be a simple as they think. It could take time, lengthy negotiations and money to win back fishing quotas already sold off by this country.
