A large convoy carrying a ship's mast has arrived in Falmouth.

A vehicle transporting a 53m long and 2.55m wide ship mast left Exeter at 9.30am and made its way with a police escort down the M5 and A30 westbound, onto the A390 through Truro and onto the A39 at Arch Hill towards Falmouth.

A police spokesperson said yesterday: "Police will be providing a full escort to the convoys and drivers can expect some disruption and possible delays during this time."
