A Cornish foodbank helping three people a day makes a plea for volunteers.

It is after Pirate FM revealed more than 300 have used the service in Falmouth and Penryn in the last three months.

Co-ordinator Claire Chandler says tourism can be a double-edged sword: "There's job cuts everywhere at the moment and even though it's lovely to have the visitors, it does actually make it difficult for the people who live here because they do have to pay the high prices but their salaries are not what it is up-country".

She is also calling for budget lessons in schools: "How to manage their money, to budget, to meal-plan; even if you're getting a small amount, if you knew how to make the most out of that then it would just take you further".
