It has been revealed more of us than ever are classing ourselves as Cornish, rather than English.

According to new data from the 2011 census, nearly 53,000 in Cornwall identified themselves as Cornish.

That is around one in ten in the Duchy, and an increase of nearly 20,000 on figures recorded ten years ago in the 2001 census.

Julie Jefferies from the Office for National Statistics, said: "In the other countries of the UK, such as Wales or Scotland, generally people are very keen to put Scottish or Welsh. But I think Cornwall is the only county or local authority where people are keen to write Cornish as their identity."
