There are fears jobs are under threat at one of Cornwall's biggest attractions.

The Eden Project has started a consultation with staff.

The charity which runs it is blaming the economic conditions for the decision.

It says a small number of jobs could go among its 500 staff. It is thought that could be up to 35.

It is facing falling visitor numbers and a gap in funding.

Last year it brought in almost £32m but spent more than £33m.

A Cornish MP is urging the government to help. St Austell's Stephen Gilbert's calling for more support from the Tourism Minister.

He has written asking to arrange a meeting to find a way forward.
