Pirate FM has been told 33,000 Cornish children could be unsafe in their own homes, because their parents are too exhausted.

A report by the Child Accident Prevention Trust says most do not remember to put hot drinks out of reach or hide medicine.

It blames long hours at work.

Anna from St Austell has three girls.

She is worried about finding a new job:

"My husband works full time, I'm a college student. I've nearly finished but I'm looking for a job at the moment but to find a job that will actually fit around the children is almost impossible. It's just stress"

My husband when he comes home from work is very tired and he's not always on the ball and he's all relaxed and I'm like 'move your cup of tea off the table' because I've got a little one running around. Tiredness and working long hours do affect your ability of thinking around young children"

Katrina Philips is from the Child Accident Prevention Trust:

"If you're absolutely exhausted and you're on a day out down at the beach you may not notice that a wind is blowing that inflatable that your kids are playing out to sea"

"It's important to keep an eye on your kids, keep an eye on what the beach flags are doing to make sure that there isn't a serious accident when you're distracted just for a moment"
