The TV adventurer and Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, has visited Cornwall to meet with local scouts and volunteers.

He met about 1,000 people after flying by helicopter into the Nine Ashes scout camp site, near Bodmin, to meet children who were at a scout fun day.

The scouts have been taking part in an adventure day trying out activities such as archery and circus skills.

The Scout Association has about 4,000 young people and volunteers signed up to it in the county.

Mr Grylls became Chief Scout in 2009.
