Proposals to close two fire stations in Cornwall and replace them with newer facilities have been approved by county planners.

Camborne and Redruth fire stations are to shut, a new control centre is to be built at Tolvaddon while a new station in Hayle will be shared with other emergency services.

Fire chiefs say the changes will allow crews to respond more quickly to emergencies.
