Job Fears at Eden

(Updated 5:47am 29th February 2012)
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.
