An adventure centre in Cornwall, which suffered a walkout by more than half of its staff, is still working to resolve the situation.

More than half of the 74 staff at Adventure International in Bude walked out on Friday, managers said.

They said the dispute related to a member of staff who was made redundant.

No comment was made by the company, but staff still working told the BBC that managers were still in talks.

Adventure International - based in a former hotel - runs outdoor holidays for school groups and families.

Activities include surfing, kayaking, caving, abseiling and climbing for up to 350 guests, according to its website.

School parties from Basingstoke, Canterbury, Southampton and Torquay have been affected by the walkout.

The BBC understands that some schools with parties at the centre have been booking activities with other providers in the area.
