There is a warning a regional pay deal will leave some Cornish workers up to £7000 a year worse off.

The government wants to bring public and private sector wages in line, by area.

Unions reckon the Duchy will lose out to staff from up country.

Nigel Costley from the TUC wants a u-turn: "It wouldn't do private sector workers any good if you reduce the pay of teachers or nurses, for example. It's just stupid economics and would really mean that Cornwall's economy goes down instead of up".

Kay Smith runs a B&B in Newquay.

She says we are already battling sky-high water bills and this will make things worse: "Everybody is, sort of, like, pulling their belts in and trying to make things meet at the moment. I think a lot more people would definitely be on the breadline which isn't good for anybody is it?"
