Campaigners warn Cornwall's coast is being put at risk.

Only four of fifteen potential sites are being declared Marine Protection Zones.

Conservation officer Ruth Williams:

"Places that haven't been put forward are places like Newquay and The Gannel, like Mounts Bay and Land's End and these are key places. The few that have been designated this year are very small and they need to be linked up together as part of this network.

"It's not going to stop people sailing across the top of the water from, in many cases, angling and certainly not from diving or anything like that. So the vast majority are still going to be multi-use areas, but the most destructive activities will be stopped."
