The Prime Minister has made an economic pledge to Cornwall today - setting out plans to create 15,000 new jobs, 5,000 new primary school places, and more money for the local NHS and roads.

He also said he would make a sports stadium for Cornwall a priority. The Cornish Pirates rugby club, which supports the Stadium 4 Cornwall campaign and would want to move to a future stadium, reacted positively to the promise.
