The Prime Minister promises to do all he can to help get Cornwall back on its feet after the storms.

It is after questions in the commons over the Duchy's £21m pound repair bill.

Officials fear they may only get £1m back from government funding.

David Cameron says there is support cash available and he is happy to continue talks.

He said: "There is the money under the Bellwin scheme so all of the emergency funding that Cornwall had to spend it can claim back, and it still has time to work on that claim, we've also increased the amount of money going through the environment agency to repair storm damage.

"I'm very happy to go on discussing with Cornish MPs, and indeed with the Cornish unitary council, to make sure we do everything we can to help Cornwall get back onto its feet after the storms, the sun is shining, I'm sure people are preparing for going to Cornwall and I know when they get there they'll have a really good time."
