Fourteen people living in a Bodmin care home start looking for somewhere new to stay.

It is after Pirate FM told you Athelstan House is being shut down because there are not enough using it.

Cornwall Care says the doors will close in less than a month.

Chief Exec Douglas Webb said: "I'm incredibly sorry that it's come to this. We'll do everything we can to help them find new homes, to assist them in visiting new places to live and getting them settled. No stone will be left unturned in our efforts in doing that.

"I've spoken to experienced people in the sector. I'm convinced that once we've broken the news to people it's better to move swiftly, not too hastily, but swiftly. Because to drag it out can just drag out the process of grieving."
