A parish council is going to court today to fight an order to cover up three old tin mines in Perranporth near where an 11-year-old holidaymaker died.

Eleanor Clarke fell down another exposed mine in 2010. The council says the land is privately owned and it doesn't have the funds to carry out the work.
