As a Friday treat, here is a look back at the stories that made the headlines this week, as well as some you may have missed.

Hopes faded for a teenager who jumped off the Torpoint ferry on New Year's eve.

Falmouth police go Gangnam style to help raise charity cash for a sick boy: VIDEO

Teenager fined for airport bomb hoax

Cornwall welcomed in the New Year with fancy dress: PICTURES

The Pandora Inn, which was gutted by a 2011 inferno, had a lucky escape after a chimney fire

A cash windfall for traders in Helston sparked a lot of debate

A controversial makeshift pharmacy at Penryyn's Asda raised the ire of readers

Also popular were articles looking back at the maritime news of 2012, and a little bit of nostalgia, pictures of Falmouth's waterfront from years gone by.

Keep your eye out for more of these in the weeks to come

And of course my favourite: the mystery of the wandering cockerel on Pendennis point is solved as owner explains how Dennis escaped to freedom.

Check back tomorrow for our picture story special, looking back at the week's photo stories.
