    No, if they pull the traffic off at Scorrier Westbound, it would leave Eastbound traffic unable to get to scorrier due to the volume of traffic coming off the A30 by the plume of feathers. This would eventually lead to traffic coming off the Eastbound carriageway to back up onto the A30, potentially causing another accident.

    If the accident happened on the A30 between Scorrier and Redruth why was the road closed off from Chiverton Cross? Police overkill again??
