David Cameron will announce today that Cornwall will receive a multi-million pound package to improve the railway service.

It's hoped the 146.6 million pound deal will provide a faster rail service, lift the local economy and create new jobs.

It's estimated that nearly seven million passengers use the rail network in Cornwall every year, with passenger numbers growing twice as fast as the national average.
