Eight hundred children are running away from home in Cornwall every year.

That is according to a new report from the Children's Society.

It says a quarter of kids are putting themselves at risk.

Rep Enver Solomon is calling on experts to do more to tackle the problem, "Often these children get into situations of great danger and harm. They might be preyed upon by adults who are seeking to abuse and exploit them. They might be sleeping rough or begging, trying to steal to survive or using excessive amounts of drugs or alcohol."

"All those agencies and professionals and people that work with children don't see it as an issue that is so common, and and that it should it should always trigger some kind of help and support, and parents don't always have the information to know what to do."
