Cornwall Council's £5000 coffee machine that has never made a cup

Despite preaching austerity and cuts, it seems that the message of 'we're all in it together' hasn't quite reached the fourth floor bunker at County Hall.

Earlier this week, the authority unveiled bottles of water shipped in from Yorkshire.
