It's been revealed that a £150 million project launched four years ago to improve mobile phone coverage in rural areas has resulted in just two masts being erected.

When the scheme was announced it had been hoped it would result in hundreds of new masts.

Cornwall is to get 35 new phone masts around its coast as part of a nationwide project to improve mobile reception.

The £5 million government project will be targeted at villages where there is no signal. It comes after David Cameron complained about poor coverage while on holiday.

The Met Office in Exeter is to get a new super computer - costing £97 million.

It'll be able to perform 16,000 trillion calculations a second and will weigh the equivalent of 11 double decker buses.

It will be able to provide very high detail weather information for precise geographical areas and help predict events such as flooding and heavy snowfall more effectively.

It's being welcomed by the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander.
