Firefighters in Cornwall were called to Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) this morning after receiving reports of a “burning smell”.

Fire crews from Truro, Redruth and Falmouth attended the hospital shortly after 10.30am.

Firefighter Rob Hosking wrote on Twitter: “Alarms sounding & smell of burning @ RCH Treliske. 2 appliances from Truro, 2 from Redruth & 1 from Falmouth attended.”

Cornwall Council confirmed the incident was a false alarm. It is understood smoke from an external source set off the alarms in multiple wards at the hospital.
