Cornish Spoof Video Game Goes Viral

Cornwall does Grand Theft Auto.

A spoof video of the game that replaces guns and fighting with stuff like the hunt for a perfect pasty has gone viral.

The scene set in Truro, instead of the streets of San Andreas, has had more than a 100 thousand hits on YouTube.

Duchy comedian Colin Leggo is behind it: "A lot of the voices are based on people I know. There are members of my extended family in there so a lot of the characters are kind of from bits of my life.

"The way the video is, all the characters are quite aggressive towards each other and it's kind of nothing like being - sort of walking down the main street in Falmouth or something where everyone's really lovely to each other."
