A new report reveals business confidence in Cornwall and Plymouth is rocketing.

It claims one in ten owners says they have never been in better shape.

In fact they expect 90% growth in the next five years.

Grenville Allen runs Wingz Bird and Animal Sanctuary near St Austell. After just two years revenue is up. He said: "It just means that hopefully we'll be able to give a couple of job opportunities in the very near future. It also means we can look at expanding what we are able to offer our customers.

"Cornwall generally is a very optimistic county. With everything we've faced in the past we always rise to a challenge. There are lots of people out there that are considering starting their own businesses and hopefully they'll go ahead and do it."

The figures have been released as part of Small Business Advice Week.
