A ROAD was closed for several hours following a crash involving an ambulance in Hayle this morning.

Madison Terrace was shut in both directions following the accident between Brookway and Lethlean Lane around 11am.

The collision involved an ambulance which was answering an emergency call at the time of the accident.

A tweet posted by the Alliance Roads Police Team states that the casualties suffered minor injuries. 

It caused signficant traffic disruption in the town, with Guildford Road and Penmare Terrace very congested, as well as the approaches to Loggans Moor roundabout on the A30.

Vehicles are now able to pass the scene.
