Twice as many people are calling the Samaritans over money worries.

The charity says nearly six out of ten in the southwest are worried about making ends meet next year.

A third of people are describing 2011 as 'bad' or one of the worst ever.

Wendy Overshot is in charge in Cornwall: "It's like dropping a pebble into a pool I think, because you have worries about money and clearly that then can very quickly lead to other concerns. Health starts to be affected and then difficulties in relationships.

"When people get so isolated and worried they can see no solution to their worries, the extreme action is suicide and so often, sadly, that can happen, when they can see no way out at all."
