    WITH its private beach and £1,500-a-night rooms, Cornwall’s Carbis Bay hotel will host the world’s leaders at next month’s G7 summit. But as Boris Johnson, Joe Biden, Angela Merkel and Co discuss cancelling Third World debt, they will be doing so in one of the poorest parts of Britain — where thousands struggle to feed their families or buy nappies for their babies. 11Cornwall’s Carbis Bay hotel will host next month’s G7 summitCredit: Alamy Seven miles down the road in the landlocked Camborne corridor, employment rates sit at a shockingly low 34 per cent — more than half the nation’s average — while the use of local food banks has soared by 200 per cent in the last year alone.  Dad-of-one Julian Ward, 51, who has been relying on food handouts since losing his job as a chef ten months ago, said: “The G7 leaders would be shocked if they came here because there are no jobs, no money, no investment and nothing going on. “People think Cornwall is the second home of the rich and famous — well, a...

For over two years, UK conservationists had tried to capture a seal the Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust spotted caught in fishing wire in December 2018, but by the time they finally freed the creature, it was too late.  This April, animal lovers finally managed to rescue the seal — which they believe to be the same one spotted in 2018 — after she became lodged between boulders near Lands End, Cornwall, the BBC reported.  While they managed to save Hattie, as they named her, from the rising tide threatening to drown her, the wounds she’d sustained from the “ghost net” she’d spent two years bound by proved fatal. Indeed, the net had left Hattie, who is thought to have been 5 years old,...
    The Duchess of Cornwall has conducted a revealing interview about the rising number of domestic abuse cases over the past 12 months.  Speaking at a women's refuge in Reading, Berkshire, the royal revealed the very personal effect witnessing domestic abuse has had on her. Camilla, 73, spoke passionately about the fact many of us across Britain will know domestic abuse victims and may not even admit it.  Earlier this year, Camilla revealed her own friends had suffered domestic violence and she has long advocated for more specialist support, becoming the patron for charity SafeLives last year. The Duchess was left visibly shaken after speaking to survivors in 2016, but she broached the topic very differently this time around on her first in-person visit to a domestic abuse refuge since lockdown restrictions eased. The Duchess of Cornwall (pictured) spoke with 18 female domestic abuse survivors at a Berkshire women's refuge and professed: 'We all know someone in an abusive relationship' Speaking with 18 female survivors at the Berkshire Aid refuge, Camilla pointed to rising domestic abuse numbers and the fact we 'all...

A runner claims he saw the animal in a large field when he was out near St Austell last week. 2The creature, which experts claim to be a lynx can be seen running to the right of the tree in CornwallCredit: CornwallLive/BPM He shared the snap on the village's local Facebook page and said: "Saw what looked like a large cat (could be a fox though) in the field this morning. "Was zoomed in all the way so image not to clear. Any feline/fox experts out there?” The post was met with comments from locals, with one resident joking that it should be called the 'Coombe Cougar'.

The runner, who didn't want to be identified told Cornwall Live: "I had just finished a run around the...
