Hundreds of people will march through Falmouth on Sunday against the pasty tax.

Protestors warn the fifty pence hike will cost Cornwall four hundred jobs - and forty million pounds.

It comes just days after MPs and bakers from the Duchy handed in a 500,000 signature petition against the move to Downing Street.

Politicians will have another three opportunities to kill the idea when it returns to parliament.

This afternoon's protest will feature a brass band and leaves the Moor in Falmouth at 2pm.

It has been organised by comedian The Kernow King. You can listen to why he feels it is so important here...
