Plans to put up Council Tax in Cornwall by 6% are scrapped.

Councillors have voted against the idea as they try to save us from the worst of the budget cuts.

That means they will vote on a 2% rise in November.

Officials have also decided to do away with the free meals they get at the Countie Hall canteen which, at the moment, cost taxpayers around £8 thousand a year.
