There are fears that 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 that it is going to get harder: "I'm in a flat at the moment and really I can't afford the accommodation and the Council know that. It's not affordable. I do need to get a council house so I'd be more secure that way.

"Really, they should be putting in local people not people that live right down in Cornwall. They should be looking after local people, not people who don't live round here."
