More than two thousand people have signed a petition calling for cheaper parking in Redruth.

Shopkeepers started the campaign in a bid to bring more people into the town.

They say rising charges have put shoppers off and hit trade.

Local business woman Tracy Hellings is heading up efforts: "There are definitely fewer people in the town. It's killing the small businesses basically. Even some of the bigger businesses are saying it's gone really quiet since the charges have gone up. Even the banks, people aren't going to pay extra just to put a cheque in.

"I've got customers who come from Plymouth and even they say the parking charges are too high. The big businesses won't come into the town anyway and if they did they need to look at the footfall and if there's no footfall here, they're not going to come."
