Staff at one of Cornwall's biggest tourist attractions lose their jobs.

19 have been laid off at Flambards in Helston.

Nine have had their hours reduced and another 17 have been put on flexi-time.

Bosses say it is while a sale goes through.

Managing Director James Kingsford Hale said:  "It's no secret the process of sale is taking longer than hoped - but it is progressing.  We continue to work hard towards the desired outcome of selling the attraction as a going concern and, importantly, ensuring all staff ultimately remain fully employed and all creditors are fully paid.
 
"We expect the sale to be completed in December but, during the transaction period, the work which can be productively undertaken at the park is naturally reducing.  We therefore deeply regret having to announce that it has been necessary to lay off a number of loyal staff and reduce the hours of others as the sale process continues.  We trust, however, that these actions can be reversed as soon as possible once the new owner takes control.
 
"We are grateful to our staff and creditors for their understanding at this difficult time – especially with Christmas approaching – but remain confident that the sale will be brought to a successful conclusion. As far as the public is concerned, One2Eleven and Flambards remain open as normal."
