Flooding is taking its toll on the roads in Cornwall after sustained heavy rain.

The A39 at Perranarworthal has been particularly badly hit with inches of water on the road.

There were severe delays this morning as drivers inched their way through the floods.

The road is understood to have remained open throughout.

Roads around Ladock were also flooded but passable.

Cornwall Council said Highways staff were busy dealing with incidents across the county.

Met Office weather warnings for more rain and winds of up to 80mph are in place for today and tomorrow.

The Environment Agency has put a flood warning in place for the entire south coast of Cornwall at high tide.

A spokesman said: "Strong winds, tidal surge and large waves are expected to cause flooding at exposed locations over the high tide on Friday evening.

"Locations with damage to defences, buildings and structures, will be especially vulnerable to the predicted large waves.

"These locations include Penzance, Newlyn Green, Marazion, Longrock, Porthleven, St Mawes, Pentewan, Looe, Seaton, Kingsand, Cawsand and Plymouth."

High water on Friday is between 4.41pm at Newlyn and 5.49 at Plymouth.
