A Royal Navy veteran who lost his leg after a car crash says he's been turned down for 2600 jobs in one year.
Mark Cock from Camborne believes employers won't take him on because of his disability, even though he's physically active, able to drive, and qualified in IT and plumbing.
He's now calling for more to be done to help disabled people back into work:
100 jobs are to go from a specialist paper mill in Ivybridge, Devon.
Stowford Mill has been making paper in the town for the past 150 years. It'll be closed over the next 18 months by its French owner, Arjo Wiggins.
Business leaders say there could be a knock on effect for the supply chain which could cost another 50 jobs.
Unemployment in the South West fell by 18,000 in the three months to June, official figures have revealed.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that a total of 157,000 people were unemployed in the region between April and June.
The region's unemployment rate was 5.8% and saw a fall of 10.3% during the period.
Unemployment nationally fell to its lowest level for a year after a big jump in the number of people in work, the new figures showed.
The jobless total fell by 46,000 in the quarter to June to 2.56 million, an unemployment rate of 8% and the number claiming jobseeker's allowance last month was 1.59 million, down by 5,900 on June, said the ONS.
More than 30 people are to lose their jobs with the closure of a factory in Cornwall which employs people with disabilities. The Remploy plant in Penzance is one of 36 to lose government funding. Many of its staff have have worked there for more than 15 years. Kathy Wardle reports.
Michael Rodgers, a worker at the Remploy factory in Penzance, gives his reaction to the news that the factory is to close with the loss of 33 jobs:
33 jobs are to be lost at the Remploy factory in Penzance.
The branch is one of 27 loss making factories due to close across the UK.
Remploy provides employment for people with disabilities, manufacturing a range of products including healthcare items and car seats.
The government has a £320 million budget for disabled employment services, but this week it announced it wanted to spend the money on other schemes.
It means half of Remploy's 54 factories will close by the end of the year.
On the day that unemployment in the south west fell by 5,000 in the three months to April, there is still huge competition for jobs. John Lewis says it has had 3,000 applications for 300 jobs at its new department store in Exeter.
