Cornwall fire control plans get £2m boost

A new fire control centre could be built in Cornwall after the government offered £2m to improve systems.

Cornwall Fire Service welcomed the money which it said would be put towards replacing the "not fit for purpose" control room in Truro.

It is looking for a site in the Camborne, Pool and Redruth area.

The fire service had been due to be controlled from a regional centre in Taunton, Somerset until the coalition government scrapped the plans.
