Traffic was asked to avoid the main street in Penryn this morning following an accident involving a pedestrian and a cyclist.

At around 11.30am Penryn Town Council's Twitter account said: "An accident has occurred in Penryn main street (Market Street) with a casualty lying in the road. Please avoid until further notice."

According to one witness inside Rowe's bakery, a female pedestrian stepped into the road from behind a bus, and was in collision with a male cyclist coming down the hill. The cyclist was unhurt, but the pedestrian was left shaken.

Michelle Davey, Penryn town clerk, said the police and ambulance service had been called.

She said: "We heard the brakes screech, and looked out and saw her lying in the road."
