It is feared rising house prices will push more people out of the market in Cornwall.

Property has seen its biggest jump in seven years.

That is being put down to more first time buyers getting on the ladder.

Deborah from Callington has been on the waiting list for a home for five years.

She is worried it will get even harder: "I'm Band C, but it hasn't got me any further. But what gets me so angry sometimes is that they're bringing people from Penzance here, and Bodmin and further away. I just don't agree with it.

"Really it should be for the local people not people that live right down Cornwall. They should be looking after the local people not people that don't live around here."
