Fewer people are coming on holiday to Cornwall.

According to tourism bosses, the number for the first the first three months of 2013 has fallen by around ten percent compared to the same period last year.

It is being blamed on a triple blow of cold and wet weather, the poor economic climate and Easter falling early.

Tina Evans owns a B&B in Padstow, and admits the weather has a huge impact.

She said: "If you're sat in London, thinking about a three day break in Cornwall and you know the weather is a howling gale and freezing cold, you're not actually going to come. So, I think if we get a nice little burst of good weather, visitors will come. I personally am not unduly worried but it has been a slow start.

"We've actually had five bad summers on the trot and people don't forget that in a hurry. But the weather gives people a real feelgood factor. If they come here and they have a lovely time, the weather's great, they can be on the beach, they're going to spend money. They'll eat out, they'll spend money in the shops."
