There is a warning new jobs could be at risk in Cornwall, if the Duchy loses control of EU funding.

At the moment officials here decide how to spend the millions.

But the government is considering taking charge instead.

A campaign is growing to stop Cornwall losing control over how the cash is spent.

The EU money is supposed to help create jobs and sort out things like transport in the Duchy.

Kim Conchie from Cornwall Chamber of Commerce says Whitehall doesn't understand problems here, he said: "Low wages, lots of small businesses struggling to compete in a global market, most of all transport infrastructure, that is everything from you getting a bus to work, to the airport working, the train, Falmouth docks and so on and so forth.

"Things coming down on high from Whitehall do not answer Cornwall's problems, and it would be disastrous, it would be gutting to all of us if all of the European money didn't solve our problems here."
