Jenefer Lowe from the Cornwall Langauge Office says move to get rid off dual language sign at Land's End is disappointing and a step backwards.
A row has broken out after a dual language sign on the main entrance to Land's End, removed the Cornish name for the attraction.
The Cornish language organisation, funded by Cornwall Council said it was a lost opportunity to promote the Cornish identity to a worldwide television audience, seeing as the torch relay started from Land's End.
Land's End said the re-painting of the sign was part of an ongoing refurbishment programme and had nothing to do with the torch relay event. It said "Cornish is displayed prominently as well as other languages on another sign within the attraction".
