Plans to bring back Cornwall's helicopter link to the islands are "coming together."

That from one of the people involved in trying to reintroduce the airlink.

But campaigners admit it probably won't be ready for take-off next year.

MP Andrew George tells Pirate FM it is not easy: "The studies have gone well, the business case is being put together, we've got a number of operators who might be prepared to run the service and we also have at least one site where a brand new heliport might be established

"As with any of these things the time it takes from execution to planning is always that much longer than you'd hoped."
