The new £4m bridge that connects Tintagel Castle to the mainland was opened last Sunday. The bridge is designed so that visitors can reach the headland on which the castle stands without climbing and descending many steps.

The plan had been to open the footbridge two days before but, due to high winds, the opening was delayed. (In Newquay, because of the same high winds the Boardmasters surfing competition was postponed and the Boardmasters music festival was cancelled entirely.)

Tintagel Castle, built in the 13th century, gained literary fame when Geoffrey of Monmouth named it as the place where King Arthur was conceived.

The 70m long bridge received £2.5m from the trust fund of businessman Hans Rausing.

The castle attracts about 250,000 visitors each year.

“Pubonan omma a greg war dornyaseth, war yagh an treth, war yagh an moryow,” yn-medh hi.

Environmental campaigners from the pressure group Extinction Rebellion came to St Ives last Sunday.

About 100 people, dressed in red clothes, took part in the demonstration at Porthmeor Beach.

The campaigners said they wanted to highlight climate change, the death of marine life and the threat from rising sea levels.

The government wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to near zero by 2050. However, the campaigners want this target to be achieved by 2025.

Manda Brookman, on behalf of Extinction Rebellion, said that the demonstration had been peaceful and friendly on "this fantastic beach in St Ives".

"Everyone here is dependent on tourism, on the health of the beach, on the health of the seas," she said.

Although the numbers of drug crimes are falling in big cities, they are increasing in many small towns, the BBC has discovered.

Information from the police shows that drug crimes in England and Wales fell by 50,000 during the past five years. But national figures hide a big change in the places where these crimes are being committed.

For example, there has been a large increase in drug crimes in small towns near the south coast, Redruth among them.

The Catholic Church says that it will continue to seek permission to build 25 houses on land that it owns at Mullion.

Campaigners have offered to buy the field, on the edge of the village, so that it may continue to be used for agriculture. However, the Church says it has a duty to use its surplus land to achieve its charitable aims of helping poor people.

Margaret Moakes, who lives in Mullion, is worried about the number of new houses being planned across Cornwall.

Meanwhile, some people in Saltash say they are furious about 85 new dwellings that will be built there. The town already had permission to build 1,000 houses at Treleden. But a government inspector has said that a second site at Middle Pill could be developed.
