One of Cornwall's MPs is warning many small local holiday businesses could go under because of a government watchdog investigation.

The Competition and Markets Authority said four out of five complaints it was currently getting was in relation to cancellations and refunds, and it was prioritising holiday cancellation policies to protect consumer rights.

But MP Derek Thomas, whose constituency covers west Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, said he was asking the CMA to consider the possible catastrophic consequences to tourism businesses.

He said that, if they were forced to pay cash refunds immediately, instead of giving time to pay back or offer a holiday deferral, "some will go bust".

The Department for Education says it does not know how many vouchers for free school meals have been delivered to parents over the past month.

A scheme to give poor pupils in England vouchers worth £15 a week until schools reopen has been beset with problems.

Some school staff had to stay up late into the night to access the online system, while many parents cannot download the vouchers.

Edenred, which runs the scheme, said it was aware of problems.

About 1.3 million children in England are eligible for free school meals.

In Bodmin, Cornwall, school catering manager Jo Wotton said she had paid for a family’s shopping after the mother’s voucher code failed at a supermarket till.

“She only had £3 in her purse,” she told BBC News.

“The shopping was £16 – it was obvious she had counted her money really carefully, going round the supermarket.

“She had a small child with her.

“I could see she was getting flustered.”

The checkout worker told her the supermarket had seen several vouchers fail the same day.

Heather McNeillis, a mother of four children under 10, three of whom are eligible for free school meals, said she had waited two weeks for her first vouchers.

“The money matters – we’ve been able to eat fresh fruit and vegetables because of it,” she said.

But she has been unable to download her current vouchers, worth £45, as the website keeps crashing.

The Department for Education and Edenred said £35m worth of vouchers had been redeemed over the past month.

However, neither were able to say what proportion of that total were orders registered for the 15,500 schools signed up to the system, as opposed to vouchers actually delivered in a useable form to families.

The Department for Education told BBC News: “We do not have this data available at this time.”

A Russian cargo ship that grounded off a Cornish beach 17 months ago is being towed away so it can be scrapped.

The 16,000-tonne Kuzma Minin has been moored off Falmouth since it ran aground in a storm in December 2018.

Falmouth harbour master Mark Sansom said it had been "a long and complex saga".

The ship was initially detained by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency after a number of defects were found, and it has only now been classed as seaworthy.

A permit has been issued for its disposal, and it will be towed to a ship- breaking yard in Aliaga, Turkey, a journey of about three weeks.

And finally, people across Cornwall have joined the rest of the UK in celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE day.

The government had moved the traditional early May bank holiday from 4 May to 8 May to allow for events to take place, but original plans were cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

However, families under lockdown celebrated at home - some using a pack produced by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport which

included ideas for homemade VE Day bunting, original recipes, games, and educational and creative activities for children.

The days commemorations began with a message from Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury and a two-minute silence at 11am. The day’s broadcast by the BBC included Winston Churchill’s victory speech and a pre- recorded address by the Queen.
