Redruth workers who could lose their jobs next year are urged to get advice sooner rather than later.

Around 175 staff at Pall face being laid off as the industrial arm is moved out to Slovakia.

Experts say it is best to prepare now for the drop in income.

Neil Colquhoun from the Duchy's Citizen's Advice Bureau says plenty of help is available: "Work out how much you owe, the things you must pay, what's left to pay, debts like credit cards and car loans. The important thing is not to panic about it and you'll find that if you come to get advice earlier rather than later you'll find it will work better for you.

"News like this can seem like the end of the world. It is difficult. No-one will take that away. But if you prepare early you're less likely to face a crisis."
