TB has been detected on a National Trust owned farm where there's been a four year experiment to vaccinate badgers. The 220 cattle at Killerton are kept isolated from all other disease sources. Badgers from the three setts on the land have been vaccinated to test its effectiveness. Tenant farmer Jon Kittow says the £320,000 experiment has not been a waste.
Falmouth's National Maritime Museum has been named the most family-friendly museum in Britain. There were six finalists in the competition organised by the charity 'Kids in Museums'. All of them were secretly visited by families during the judging process. The attraction has also been named Cornwall's Best Museum.
New figures show police have investigated more than 460 crimes in and around Derriford Hospital during the last three years. They include one alleged attempted murder and seven sexual assaults. Theft was the most common crime investigated, with 157 incidents. The hospital said the numbers were relatively low compared with the thousands of people on the site every day.
Last November a team of volunteers set traps for the rats. It was estimated there were 20,000 rats on the Scillies, 3,000 of them on St.Agnes and Gugh. Similar schemes had worked on other islands around the world.
Lydia Titterton is one of the volunteers monitoring the success of the scheme. She regularly checks the burrows where the chicks nest:
A man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a woman was shot in the head in a sleepy holiday village. The 57-year-old was attacked with what police suspect was some sort of airgun. She survived the attack just before midnight at a car park in Millendreath, Cornwall, and made it home where she called for help.
Paramedics rushed her to hospital with a serious head injury before alerting police. Armed officers responded by flooding the nearby village of Looe where they arrested two men close to a church.
One was held on suspicion of attempted murder while the other was accused of assisting an offender.
Hundreds of runners have been taking part in the very first Barnstaple marathon and half marathon in glorious weather in north Devon. Bob Cruwys has this report:
300 years ago boats that were shipwrecked off the Isles of Scilly brought some unwelcome visitors - RATS. And the rodents have proved a curse to birdlife on the islands ever since.
The rats that swam to safety, quickly multiplied - and for centuries have fed on eggs and chicks of rare nesting seabirds. But now the rat population on St Agnes has been wiped out, there's been an extraordinary change of fortune for the birds.
For the first time in living memory a Manx Shearwater has been reared on the Isles of Scilly.
Jaclyn Pearson is from the Seabird Recovery Project:
The Prime Minister has told us the Tories are capable of winning an outright majority at the next election - and ruled out doing any kind of deal with UKIP in the wake of the defection of two of his MPs.
It comes on the day George Osborne told the Tory Party Conference he would freeze benefits paid to people of working age - if the party win the next election.
