It is feared hundreds of Cornish teenagers will miss out on a new bursary because they study over the border in Devon.

Officials are pouring in 700 thousand pounds to help the poorest through their A-Levels.

But people living in the Duchy but going to college over the Tamar will not qualify.

Callington Councillor Andrew Long says, "We want to make sure there is equality in this procedure. We think this is a great idea. Our concern is to make sure the small number of students going across the border will get support as well".
