Stormy weather across Cornwall is wreaking havoc as trees are falling and blocking access to roads.

According to the Met Office tonight it will be very windy with gales, which will be more severe around coastal areas.

According to BBC South West Falmouth reports Swanpool Road west bound is partially blocked between Silverdale Road and Bickland Water Road due fallen tree.

In Penzance the A30 is partially blocked in both directions between Eastern Green and Treweath Road due to a fallen tree.

On the B3293 between Helston and St Keverne there's a tree down just on the St Keverne side of Zoar Garage.

On Trevillet Hill coming into Tintagel there's a big branch in the road.

Between St Erth and Canonstown there's a cable down and between St Buryan and Porthcurno at Treen there's a tree down, according to BBC South West.

At Trelowth, near St Austell the A390 westbound is blocked due to fallen tree around Coliza Hill.

On back roads by Wall and Reawla in North Cornwall there's a tree down, according to BBC South West.

Rail services have been affected by the bad weather conditions according to First Great Western (FGW).

The sleeper service between London Paddington and Penzance has been cancelled until further notice because of poor weather conditions.

FGW said that buses replace trains between Exeter St Davids and Newton Abbot until February 7 because track damage caused by poor weather.

A spokesman for FGW said: “The weather is expected to get worse today until 9pm and until that has passed only then will we determine when we can continue normal service but not in the next 24 hours.”
