A Christmas tree and lights display wrecked by vandals in Cornwall has been replaced. After repeated attacks Bodmin town council decided to fence it off. But, thanks to a strong public response a new tree has been put up and the lights will be turned on later.

A Cornish vineyard says the recent weather has been so perfect that it's had its best year yet.

Camel Valley at Bodmin has begun picking and pressing the season's grapes. The owners say the warm climate and little rain we've had should make this their best year since they started 25 years ago.

Grapes pressed this week should be ready for bottling and drinking by Easter next year.


Memorial to brave Bodmin man

He was just a humble boy from Bodmin. But he grew up to be a hero on the battlefield.

Now James Finn will have a permanent memorial in his home town. It'll mark the gallantry which won him the Victoria Cross, our biggest military honour.

The Government has agreed to pay for the memorial which'll be placed in the town centre in time for next year's centenary of the outbreak of the First World War.

Our Cornwall correspondent Steve Hardy reports.
