The cost of childcare is rising faster than inflation.

A charity says working parents are now paying up to 15 thousand pounds a year.

The Daycare Trust wants a rise in tax credits and more places.

The Bishop of Truro has written to the government about the benefits bill.

Reverend Tim Thornton says many mums and dads are struggling to put food on the table: "The food bank has just given out their thousandth food parcel to a family in Wadebridge. I really do want to ask what we're playing at in this day and age in the twenty-first century, when we have families in Cornwall who are in desperate need of food to survive day-by-day".
