There are job fears as one of Cornwall's biggest car sellers confirms it is closing.

Ward Vauxhall has sites at Truro, Falmouth and Helston.

Staff have been on the line to Pirate FM.

They claim up to 30 posts could go but bosses say they cannot confirm numbers.

Fellow dealer Riders is taking over at Truro and says it hopes to reopen Falmouth too.

A spokesman told Pirate FM it is because of the economic climate: "It is one of the facts of life. It is unfortunate that people have had to lose their jobs but you can't keep running a business that isn't making money".

The spokesman said they have, "tried to make the best of it".
