Calls to crack down on Cornwall's second homes could be no more.

West Cornwall MP Andrew George had it as part of his private members bill.

But he is not getting the support he needs to help cap the number of them in the Duchy.

He wants to see a limit to help give families a chance to get on the property ladder.

Now it might have to be scrapped.

He said: "I was looking at trying to constrain the impact that second homes have, the detrimental impact, I understand that people have a right of course to purchase and invest in second properties if they wish but sometimes that does have a detrimental impact in some communities.

"It wouldn't actually stop them it would just say we'll only have a limit of 100 or we'll have no more than ten percent in this particular community, and once we reach that level that will be the cap and there will be no more."
