Pirate FM has learnt one in five workers in Cornwall and Devon has suffered a big financial shock in the last three years.

The figures cover things like a drop in wages.

More than half say they struggle to pay the bills.

Richard from Launceston lost his job after his marriage ended: "There are all sorts of reasons, people lose their jobs, people are cutting back and yet you still hear good sounds of new businesses are setting up as well. But, I must admit I'm not surprised by one in five. I think that's par for course to be honest in this country.

"Make sure you have friends to support you when you're in need because they've been really helpful for me. Be prepared to look at things which are different to the past, be prepared to play to your gifts, don't turn things down because they are different from what you might expect to find."
