Patients at a mental health unit in Cornwall are being relocated after the building has been declared unsafe.

26 patients at Longreach House in Redruth are being moved temporarily after the building was found to have inadequate fire proofing in the roof area.

Cornwall Partnership NHS Trust say the problem wasn't picked up on fire safety checks because the roof area is sealed off.
