Plans to tighten up laws in Cornwall's harbours have been branded as a 'step too far'.

A bill to give managers more powers is being put through parliament by the MP for south-east Cornwall.

Sheryll Murray fears leisure users will be restricted or pushed out are just scare stories.

She said: "It's worked very well for thirty percent of the harbours, and it's going to continue to work. It's all to do with maritime safety. It doesn't mean that harbourmasters are going to irresponsibly use the powers. They're just going to maintain safety.

"Nobody cares more about it than I do, because of my personal situation, and I would never, ever introduce something that my late husband would have considered to be a disadvantage to small boat owners."
