Shop owners in Helston fear they could lose customers, if their street is pedestrianised.

There are possible plans to stop cars going down Meneage Street.

It is as £250,000 is to spent on improvements for the town.

But locals are worried it will hit business and shut shops down.

Brian Shaw who runs a bakery there has started a petition: "We all struggle. We have trouble paying our rents and rates and electricity. If you half our footfall, jobs will go. There are some shops on this street which are on a knife edge as it is.

"There is the potential of over 400 people to park free in the centre of Helston, that footfall will just disappear. I employ 22 full time staff, now let's just say my turnover halved, that's ten jobs gone."
