There are problems on the roads this lunchtime as crashes coupled with a surge of visitors to Cornwall for the combined bank holiday weekend and half term break result in long delays.

On the A30 at Carland Cross traffic is queuing in both directions, due to the volume of vehicles on the roads.

Crashes in Pool and St Ives are also causing problems.

Dudnance Lane in Pool is partially blocked in both ways, following a collision involving two vehicles near Kerrier Way. Traffic is slow in the area as a result.

And on the B3311 at Hellesveor, near St Ives, the road is partially blocked due to a two-vehicle crash near to the B3306 at Higher Stennack.

The problems are likely to continue on Monday when 16 months of disruption in the Falmouth and Penryn area begins.

Motorists have been warned that long delays are likely during the period of work on and around the Penryn bypass, which is due to begin on May 27 and not end until September 27, 2020.

Between these dates a 40mph speed limit will be in place on the entire stretch of the A39 between Antron Hill at Mabe and Union Road, off the Hillhead Roundabout to Falmouth , 24 hours a day, including at weekends.

It is so that South West Water can carry out a £10.5 million upgrade to College Water Treatment Works, which supplies Falmouth and the surrounding area.
