A poll by a group of newspapers in Cornwall has found the vast majority of those who voted do not consider themselves English.
It asked: Do you feel more Cornish or English?
Users who took part voted 78 per cent for Cornish, 14 per cent for English and eight per cent didn’t know.
The vote was launched after the government announced protected status under the 1998 European Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities bill.
The decision last month has put Cornish heritage in line with the legal recognition afforded to Scottish, Welsh and Irish cultures.
