Two hundred new jobs are created at Cornwall's new services.

The motorway-style stop has opened on the A30 at Roche.

It has got big brands like Costa and McDonalds alongside local food companies and charging points for electric cars.

Spokesman Mark Upton told Pirate FM: "There's a billion pound tourist industry in Cornwall and this will really, really help that. It's going to mean that people can plan their journey and the fact is that you've passed Exeter services station so you know 56 miles down the road you've got Cornwall Services which is somewhere where you can stop, re-fuel, have a break.

services"It's about Cornwall. Most of the jobs, nearly all of the jobs, are Cornish jobs. Pretty well all of the jobs on building, the sub-contractors and everything else are Cornish jobs. We've got about 150 jobs on the construction of the hotel. But it's about Cornwall. It's about having a facility that is local and employs local people."
It's the first to put big brand names alongside local food producers.

Among them is Jon Teeluck who said: "People want to be eating great produce and they want to be looking at where their food comes from and with the amount of produce that Cornwall produces and the quality of the food available I think it's a fantastic concept for people to be introduced to, especially in a travel environment.

"I've got a family. We travel a lot and we go to service stations and we thought what better than to have a concept where you can come in, into a service station and have locally produced food, great quality at a great price as an alternative when you're stopping off en-route."
