A petition against plans to privatise some of Cornwall's libraries and benefits gets five thousand signatures.

Some councillors have already voted against the idea which will see two companies bid to run services.

Officials say it will create 500 new jobs.

Now the leader of Cornwall Council has announced they will drop the plans, if councillors vote to reject them a second time.

Alec Robertson is facing a motion of no confidence.

A debate will be held later this month.
