Cornwall's 'Troubled' Families

(Updated 6:04pm 15th December 2011)
It is revealed there are almost 1,300 troubled families living in Cornwall.
The government says nationwide problem homes cost £9 billion a year.
Now 100,000 will get a knock on the door from troubleshooters, telling them to get out of bed to take their children to school.
Reverend Tim Thornton, Bishop of Truro says it is a step in the right direction: "The danger would be that some people would react very negatively to that, and I do think some of the issues and people we are talking about here are quite complex situations with lots of different factors involved. It really is not simple otherwise many of these problems would have been dealt with before."
