One lane of the A30 in Cornwall was closed for several hours today following a four-vehicle crash.

Major tailbacks were reported in the area following the crash in Bolventor at around 10am.

A police spokesperson said a coach, a blue tipper truck, a red Seat saloon and a green Citroën C5 were involved in the crash.

The eastbound carriageway was partially closed between Callywith and Bodmin Moor Services while emergency services dealt with the incident.

One person suffered a minor injury and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

No other injuries were reported.

The A30 was reportedly at a standstill in places, with hundreds of motorists on the road during the last weekend of summer.

Motorists were advised to seek an alternative route where possible.

The incident was cleared by 5pm.
