It is revealed operations are being cancelled at Treliske - because of pressure on A&E.

Hospital bosses say 27 were cancelled on Monday and Tuesday.

It is being blamed on a high number of emergencies and not getting patients out quick enough.

Pirate FM told you the hospital missed its target to see people within four hours.

Part of that is down to unfilled vacancies and a nationwide shortage of A&E consultants.

The Royal Cornwall has avoided declaring a major incident, like many other hospitals across the country.

But it admits departments are feeling the pressure.

Andy Virr is in charge of the A&E department and told ITV: "We have had to take steps like cancelling operations - which we really regret. But it's part of making sure we can preserve beds for sick patients coming in the front door."
