Increasing costs and reduced revenue has led to Imerys carrying out a strategic review of its Long Distance Lorry Fleet, which consists of 8 lorries.
As a result of this review, taking all factors into account, including the escalating maintenance costs of the fleet, Imerys is now proposing to outsource its Long Distance Fleet operations.
A man from Cornwall has won a million pounds on a National Lottery scratchcard. The man, who is yet to be named, works as a gardener in St Austell. He will receive his prize at the Eden Project later today.
A charity that has been feeding vulnerable and homeless people in Cornwall for more than twenty years has been named winner of the Prime Minister's Big Society Award.
St Austell Community Kitchen provides hot meals and computer courses to anyone in the community who needs them.
It's run entirely by volunteers and had faced closure two years ago due to a lack of funding.
The charity's Chairman says he's proud the service is being recognised:
He may be only ten, but Monty Rix already has his eyes on the stars. Monty, from St Austell, is the youngest person in the country to be studying for a GCSE in astronomy. He's following in the foosteps of his father as our Cornwall correspondent Steve Hardy reports.
A renewed appeal has been made to walkers to avoid dangerous stretches of the coast path in the south west.

Sarah Bullock, who's serving a life sentence for her part in torturing to death a St Austell man with severe learning difficulties has been told her sentence will not be cut short.
Bullock was 17 when she was sentenced to a minimum of 10 years behind bars in July 2007 for the murder of 38-year-old Steven Hoskin. Bullock was found guilty of assisting her boyfriend Darren Stewart in torturing Mr Hoskin, until he fell to his death off a viaduct.
Lawyers for Bullock tried to persuade a judge that her progress in custody has been so "exceptional" that her minimum sentence should be cut.
