DEVON and Cornwall Police have confirmed that contrary to initial reports, there has been two separate incidents at Chiverton roundabout this morning.

Traffic reports stated that there was a five-vehicle incident, but that is not the case. 

The first crash occurred when a vehicle crashed into a road sign.

Shortly afterwards, near the first crash, there was a two-vehicle collision.

Police were first called at 7am.

There are no reported injuries and the vehicles are currently awaiting recovery.

Lane 1 of the A30 will be closed for the recovery truck to attend.

The accidents are believed to have been caused after the vehicles lost control on black iced road conditions after a heavy hail storm.

Traffic is at a standstill as far back as the eastbound Avers junction at Redruth, with heavy traffic also on the A390 heading towards Truro.
