It has come out that twelve Cornish children with mental health problems have been moved out of the Duchy in the last year.

It is because there is nowhere to look after them.

It has meant one thirteen year old boy being sent to Birmingham, 250 miles away.

Campaigners are demanding better facilities so youngsters can be closer to their families.
