A car has ended up on its roof during a collision near a Falmouth beach this lunchtime.

The crash took place on the road near to Maenporth Beach at around 12.10pm.

It is involved a white Fiat 500, understood to have been driven by an elderly man, and a silver Renault with a driver and a passenger.

Emergency services attended, including two police cars, two ambulances and a fire engine.

The road has now reopened following the recovery of the Fiat.
