As this summer's heatwave continues, roads around Cornwall have become so hot that they have started melting.

Temperatures hit 30 degrees Celsius in some parts of the county today and the persistent heat has now started to take its toll on the county's road surfaces.

Cars were spotted hastily swerving to the side as they drove up The Furry in Helston, from the Porthleven roundabout towards Spar, after the inside edge of the road began melting.

One vehicle, which did not notice in time, was left with hot tarmac stuck to its tyres.

It's the same story in Coverack, where the central section of the main road into the village appears wet at first glance, but is in fact melted tarmac.
