Cornwall's debt crisis is revealed.

A charity says after bills, food and fuel, people in some parts only have £17 a month to clear what they owe.

Consumer Credit Counselling took more than one call a day last year.

That is up 16%.

People in Padstow say they are feeling the pinch: "Much tougher and we're finding a difference with the bills. We have to be more careful and we're not quite as extravagent as we used to be. Things are pretty tough, well, tougher than they have been for a while. You've got to be boring and just pay the important things, as oppose to go out and spend time with your friends and family".
