It is hoped that cash to repair Penzance's Jubilee Pool will bring new jobs to west Cornwall.

The lido secured almost two million pounds after being battered in the winter storms.

Speaking on a visit to the town on Tuesday, Communities Minister Penny Mordaunt tells Pirate FM it could be a big boost: "This will not only provide a wonderful facility for the local community and for people visiting, but will be a catalyst to other businesses in the area being set up. It will create jobs and it will create, really, a sustainable all year round facility."

The Minister is also promoting a new competition to help save our high streets as she visits Liskeard on Wednesday.

The town has led the way in boosting trade as part of the Portas pilot scheme.

Now others are being urged to apply for 'The Great British High Street' competition.

Penny Mordaunt said: "Government can help by tackling over zealous parking restrictions, help with planning and those sorts of things as well as directing some funding in there. But fundamentally it is, again, about local people having that strong plan and vison for the place."

The Communities Minister has also visited Newquay, the lobster hatchery in Padstow, Carbis Bay and the Porthleven regeneration scheme.
