Cornish families fear the new year means a new struggle to stay out of poverty.

A Pirate FM poll reveals more than half think 2013 is going to be even tougher than 2012.

A third say it will be about the same while just 12% think it will be better.

The news comes on Blue Monday - officially the most depressing day of the year.

It is the day we are believed to feel the full weight of gloomy weather conditions, post-Christmas debts and failing New Year's resolutions.

Jacqui White is project manager at Wadebridge Foodbank.

She is preparing for a rush: "Because people don't want their children to go without they've put things on their credit cards. Then the credit card bill comes in January, February time and that's when they realise they really can't pay. It'll either be - feed my children, pay the bill, pay the rent. They just get stretched too far.

"I think it will get worse. The heating is on, it's getting cold, the lighting's on. There will be more and more bills coming in."
