The tills are alive in Cornwall.

Thousands are hitting the shops as the sales rush starts.

Businesses in the Duchy are urging locals to visit the high street to boost trade.

Callington florist Jane says the internet and supermarkets do not have everything: "Please do support the local businesses. If you come here you get more than flowers. We've got a gift emporium, I run art exhibitions and if for any reason I decided to go, once we're gone we're gone; there is no going back so please support your local businesses.

She adds that business was good in the run-up to Christmas but local firms need support all year round: "It is good to be busy and to be honest it's feast or famine so this is the feast time and it'll cover for January when I'll be quieter.

"We've still got all the bills to pay all year round. Just because the shop goes quiet - you don't get a let up on all your bills."
