It is feared Cornwall could be losing hundreds of thousands of pounds a year because of stress.

Ninety percent of workers say they have suffered at work.

It is one of the stories you can hear on Pirate Two from seven on Monday evening, the new radio station from Pirate FM.

Kim Conchie from Cornwall's Chamber of Commerce warns it is hard to judge the impact:  "Absenteeism you can, 'I've got a cold' or some other problem because they won't admit to stress, but when you are there not concentrating properly there is no way to put a figure on that There are some recent studies trying to put a figure on it and it is a big problem."

He adds bosses need to offer more support: "There's another problem of 'presenteeism' which is coming in - but being so angry with your surroundings and unable to concentrate that you're only about 30% effective, you're not a good colleague."
