Experts think a fake baby bump could slash Cornwall's teenage pregnancy rate

Over 300 under 16's conceived in the Duchy last year.

Youth workers think using a fake bump in schools could be the key to changing their minds

Pam Harper's used one at the Dreadnought Centre in Pool: "They want something to love, to give unconditional love to. They think it'll give unconditional love back, not realising the long term effects. We get them to put it on, to see how it feels and after about half an hour they say 'I don't' want to be pregnant anymore, I don't want it, no that's not what I want'.

"Yes, it really puts them off pregnancy. I hope not for life! They can't do normal everyday things. You get them to sit down and say:  'Right, now stand up' and they say 'Oh you're need to help me up'. Or:  'Tie up your shoe' and they say ' I can't reach my shoes, I can't see my feet'. Just to give them the reality of being pregnant.

Pirate FM's Neil Caddy wore one of the bumps on Friday. You can see how he got on here.
