It has been revealed people in Cornwall are being charged £25 for European health cover they should get free.

It is because some official looking websites make you pay for the card that gets you care in EU hospitals if something goes wrong on holiday.

Graham Watson, Liberal Democrat MEP for the Duchy, has warned people not to fall for it.

He said: "Beware some companies on the internet who are charging people to obtain these cards. There is no charge. You can get one of these European Health Insurance cards free from the government, you can find out about it on the internet. There is no charged involved.

Graham said rules on travel compensation have changed too: "Proper compensation if their flight, or their train, or their coach, or their ferry, is unduly delayed. And at ferry terminals, at railway stations, at airports, people will be able to see the noticeboards, telling them exactly what their rights are."
