As figures reveal there was one death and more than 200 major injuries on Cornwall's farms last year, there is a health and safety warning.

They are being given more information on things like working at heights, dealing with heavy machinery and chemicals.

Ian Davy from Trerulefoot was electrocuted while harvesting and says, "It was quite a nasty experience. I wouldn't advise anybody to try it. I managed to break away and ultimately the result was that it completely dislocated my shoulder and smashed my arm. The moral of the story is always look up when you're tipping a trailer".
