Cornwall is promised upgraded travel links.

It is thanks to a £2 million pound growth deal between the government and the Local Enterprise Partnership.

The cash will go towards things like train services, bus and cycle routes and garaunteeing an air link to London.

There will also be discussions about dualling the A30 at Chiverton Cross to Carland Cross.

Investment will go into education and training too.

This is after Pirate FM told you the whole deal is expected to bring around four-thousand jobs to the Duchy.

Chris Pomfret is Chairman of the Local Enterprise Partnership, he said: "Hopefully it means Cornwall will become a better place economically than it is today, but without damaging the Cornwall we all love and the reason why we're all here, we believe you can develop by having better quality jobs and better paid jobs.

"It means the garuantee of the continuation of the air route to London, a big deal on the railways which will give us the ability to have a half hourly service not an hourly service, bringing down the repairs and maintenance of the sleeper service to Cornwall, so that is another sixty jobs."
