It is the final day of Cornwall's royal visit.

The Duchess of Cornwall will officially open Cornwall Air Ambulance's new HQ at Newquay airport. She will meet the charity's fundraising teamn, tour the crew quarters, see how specialist equipment works and meet a patient whose live was saved by the helicopter paramedics.

Camilla has been patron of the charity since last year.

Later Charles and Camilla travel to Lostwithiel to see how the town is planning to deal with a repeat of devastating floods which crippled parts of the town two years ago.

Forty youngsters from organisations such as Scouts, Guides, St John Ambulance and cadets will help alert locals and pump out homes. It follows a suggestion from the prince himself following the 2010 downpours that Scouts and Guides could help support communities when there is an emergency.

They will take part in a training exercise before being presented with the Duke of Cornwall Community Safety Award by the prince.

The award was set up by Tony Garvin. He said, "It's a very proud moment. Scared a little bit is probably the right word but looking forward to it. It's so nice to see what the young people have managed to achieve in such a short time.

"Looking at the young people, the smiles on their faces when they get to meet the royals, that's probably the most important part. The whole award fits in so nicely to a lot of the community safety work that we are doing."

Mayor Gill Parsons said, "We had a wonderful jubilee weekend here and I just feel honoured I've been invited to be there. There's a real buzz. Everybody turns out to wave them on, especially in a little place like this. We always have a real buzz when the royals arrive."
