One of the main routes into Penryn town centre remained flooded on Monday after the town was hit by heavy rain.

Browns Hill, which leads into the town from the B3292, closed on Friday evening when a nearby watercourse overflowed, and was still under several inches of water at Monday lunchtime.

The road was flooded for a distance of around 50 metres, with a side road to the B3292 also partially submerged, forcing drivers to slow dramatically upon exiting the main road.
