Helicopters could fly between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly again.

Agusta Westland has said it will provide choppers to resurrect the route.

Campaigners still have to find a company to run them after British International pulled out last year.

Jonathan Gibbard runs the Turks Head Pub in Penzance: "It'd be fabulous. I'd love to think we could get a service back in town.
