It is revealed Cornish foster carers and businesses have been hit by late payments.

Some funded by Cornwall Council were left out of pocket after problems with a new computer system.

Critics claim it is a repeat of the fiasco when Cory took over rubbish collections.

County Hall have apologised and say they took on extra staff to clear the backlog.

In a statement, a spokersperson said: "We are aware that there have unfortunately been issues with some suppliers not receiving payment on time and would like to apologise to those affected for the inconvenience caused by this delay.
 
"We have taken action to address these issues and have recruited additional temporary staff to process the backlog of invoices that temporarily built up. We are pleased to confirm that there are no longer any 'out of terms' payments outstanding to be paid by our Accounts Payable Team and are confident that the issue is now under control.
 
"If any supplier has any concerns or questions regarding payments, please contact our team on (01872) 323000."
