Pirate FM has learnt people involved in talks to save Cornwall's helicopter link to the islands are feeling "more optimistic."

British International is planning to scrap the service in November.

It can not afford to run the route after a legal challenge over a money making scheme to sell its Penzance heliport.

Local MP Andrew George said: “I would not want to raise expectations unrealistically at this stage. However, I am more optimistic now than I had been when British International announced last week that the service would end in November.
 
“No stone is being left unturned. All parties are determined to do all that they can to save this service. While discussions are going on, nothing more can be said publicly.”
