There is 700 thousand pounds to help Cornish teenagers through their A-Levels.

The Council has rubber-stamped a new bursary for poorer students.

It is after the government scrapped the Education Maintenance Allowance.

Children and families' officer Neil Burden says, "We'll hand the money over to the colleges and they'll know the students who have the greatest need. Maybe the bus fare, maybe a laptop, maybe a bit of money to buy a bit of food; whatever it is we want to make sure we keep them in education.

"We want to achieve this because our young people are the most important part of our community because they're our future and it's them that we'll all rely on in time. So therefore, we want to give them the best start we can".
