In the first part of the week, there was a huge fire at a tyre recycling centre in St Erth. It is thought that the fire started at about 8 o’clock on Monday evening. It continued to burn throughout the night and the following days.

At the height of the blaze, more than 70 firefighters were battling the flames. It was necessary to bring some firefighters from Devon to support their Cornish colleagues. The Hayle bypass and St Erth railway station were closed. Smoke from the fire could be seen from a distance of twenty miles.

The bypass was re-opened on Tuesday morning, but St Erth station remained closed. There were were no trains operating between Penzance and Truro until Wednesday afternoon.

According to rescuers, four people are lucky to be still alive, after their boat was swamped by a huge wave close to Tresco last Sunday.

One person was thrown into the sea and three others were swept on to rocks, where they lay injured and distressed.

Andy Howell, the captain of the local pleasure boat Osprey, pulled one person from the water. Mr Howell was taking a group of holidaymakers to see marine wildlife. His passengers helped him to spot the casualty in the water.

Mr Howell said: “I saw this giant wave approaching, like a big surfing wave. There was a man right in it and he slid downwards, going down the face of it.

“We saw three people on the rocks. We approached them, but we had to be careful, of course. Then we spotted someone else in the sea. He was shouting ‘Help!’ and ‘I’m falling asleep.’ So I thought, ‘ We have to go and get him.’”

The St Mary’s lifeboat requested the coastguard to send a helicopter, which took the four victims to Truro hospital.

Mr Howell’s brave action has been praised by the RNLI.

Unn konnyk a leveris y hyll reunyon gorow nerthek bos tiredhel dres eghen, hag y hwra reunyon benow gwitha aga yowynkes, mar omklewons godrosys.

Gill Bell, dhyworth Kowethas Withans Morek Kembrek, a leveris: “Ny assewgh hwi fleghes dhe neshe ki gwyls. Ytho, prag y’ga gassewgh dhe neshe reun?

“Kepar ha fleghes vyghan yw reunyon: i a wra gorra neppyth y’ga ganow.”


Holidaymakers in St Ives have been warned to avoid wild seals, amid concerns that one of these wild animals could “take off a child’s arm”.

The number of people who swim with seals has increased during recent years, according to harbour master Steve Bassett.

Now he has put up warning signs around the harbour.

One expert said that powerful male seals could be extremely territorial, and female seals will protect their young, if they feel threatened.

Gill Bell, from the Welsh Marine Conservation Society, said: “You wouldn’t allow children to approach a wild dog. So why would you allow them to approach a seal?

“Seals are like young children: they will put anything in their mouths.”

More than 10,000 people have signed the online petition asking the government to restore funding for the Cornish language. This means that the government will have to respond to the petition.

(Government funding of the language was withdrawn in April this year.)
