Quotes

British Prime Minister David Cameron said: "I have just seen the news. It is an absolutely disgusting and despicable act. I will be making a statement later"
Kevin Herniman speaks for the FBU in the Duchy and told Pirate FM he is worried: "With a place like Cornwall which is quite a large county geographically and to get crews to an incident is quite hard, so any cuts at all with fire appliances or firefighters will have a detrimental effect."
Manager Steve Williamson reckons it's down to the high cost of living, he said: "Despite what it sometimes appears in the media that the recession is over, that never hits Cornwall at the same time as everywhere else."
In a 160 page report, detailing cuts worth almost £200m, the council said: "Pedestrian safety will not be reduced, but the perception will be that children will be less safe without assistance on formal crossings. It may generate comments from schools and parents."
