THERE is a tailback of around three miles following two accidents on the A30 this morning.

The eastbound carriageway at Scorrier is partially blocked due to the crash at the junction for the A3047.

Congestion is stretching as far back as the Avers Roundabout at Redruth.

A second accident has happened in the queue for an earlier accident, which was recovered at around 7.30am.

The surrounding roads are also very busy as a result, with the road towards Chacewater very congested.

UPDATE: The accidents have now been cleared and the lanes reopened. Traffic has returned to normal.
