Cornwall's jubilee celebrations are starting.

Dozens of street parties and thousands of tourists are expected to descend. Business leaders think it could be worth £25m to the southwest's economy.

Police and paramedics are stepping up cover in Newquay for the bank holiday break. It has also got the Run to the Sun festival.

Last summer Street Safe helped almost two hundred people - hurt, lost or drunk. During the summer volunteer teams of four work on Friday nights into the early hours of Saturday morning to help anyone who appears vulnerable or worried. They work closely with the police, ambulance services and Street Safe project by providing a listening voice and pastoral support for people who want it. They are also able to signpost people to other services if they need to.


Paul runs a shop in the resort and is hoping for a bumper bank holiday. He said, "Historically bank holidays have always been very good, but there has been a decline in the last couple of years without a doubt. Hopefully the extended bank holiday will give people a little bit more encouragement to travel down.

"There's just no comparison. I don't think there's anywhere in the world that's any better for such beautiful coastline and scenery and some of the best beaches in the world."

But many party organisers are anxiously watching the skies. The Westcountry Tonight's weatherman Bob Constantine said, "It has become grey with some mist about the place. Running into the weekend it is going to be cloudy. I'm afraid for all those jubilee events I haven't got very much good news for you."
