Campaigners launch an e-petition over the future of Falmouth Harbour.

A decision to dredge the port for cruise ships is on hold because of environmental fears.

Now locals are trying to drum up a hundred thousand signatures, and force a debate in Parliament.

Some are accusing the government of stalling.

Kevin Watts from A & P Falmouth set it up: "It's not something new, dredging, it's something that's happened historically over the years. It's going to secure our future. It needs to be dredged. It's getting shallower every year out there and we've had to turn ships away recently because there's not enough depth of water there.

"We've only just started it, but we've got well over a hundred signatures on the petition now. The more people that sign the petition, the better. It's going to secure our future and the future of the surrounding area as well. We're looking at bringing in renewable energy, more cruiseliners, you know it's all good for the local community."
