Breaking News ! As Devon and Cornwall prepare for an "unprecedented" surge of visitors - one mum has revealed she has been "too scared" to go food shopping in her hometown. Claire Harris, 37, told the BBC that she had also taken the bold decision to ban her children from the town's main street and harbour because of the hordes of people. The concerned parent added that friends of hers felt similarly. This comes as Boris Johnson encouraged staycations in yesterday's Government briefing. He said: "There are all sorts of fantastic destinations, the best in the world, I would say. "All my happiest holiday memories are of holiday vacations here in the UK, bucket-and-spade jobs or whatever, and I thoroughly, thoroughly recommend it, and I'm sure that people will have a great time over the summer."

Visit Cornwall chief executive Malcolm Bell also revealed yesterday that campsites are fully booked and that anyone coming to Cornwall without a booking was unlikely to find accommodation.

. Mr Bell said: "We want to reinforce the need for social distancing for people when they are out and about and how important it is. "Campsites are booked up but we have the likes of Hendra (in Newquay) which is operating at 60% of normal capacity due to the guidelines. "There have been the odd cancellations where people have been able to get spaces but people coming down here should not expect to be able to find a space easily if they haven't booked. "The message remains to people to plan ahead and book before coming to Cornwall - many campsites are not holding waiting lists either - it's important to book ahead." Mr Bell said that the feedback he had from campsites and other tourism businesses was that "90% of people are behaving themselves" but stressed that people who were not following guidelines included locals as well as tourists. He said: "It is based on age, with locals and visitors, with those below 30 in particular who are not following the guidelines. You see some groups and think 'that must be a big family' as you see six children or more of a similar age."
