Cornish families are set to find out how long it is safe to stay in the sun.

A new trial has started to work out how much is needed to make Vitamin D, without without giving us cancer.

The Duchy has got one of the highest rates in the country.

Mum of one Lianne from Lanner steers clear altogether. She said: "I don't think it's safe at all. There are certain creams you can put on and everything else, but from my experience, my mum is actually in hospital today having a check up because she's had skin cancer. I do walk around in the sun, but I don't sit there and bake.

"At the end of the day, my life is too precious to sit there and frazzle. Years ago, I was the one that was there, you know, nothing on me, no cream or anything and I would literally burn. There are plenty of good products that you can fake it, and still look good."
