Firecrews have battled back a big blaze at Quintrell Downs.

More than a dozen people called 999 when black smoke and flames started billowing from a workshop on Bridle Way on Tuesday evening.

Teams called in back up from Newquay, St Columb, St Austell, Truro, Helston and Launceston.

It took them around seven hours to bring it under control.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "17 repeat calls were received by Fire Control earlier this evening concerning a fire, with a large amount of black smoke and flames issuing, that had broken out in commercial premises in Bridle Way, Quintrell Downs, Newquay.

"Crews from Newquay, St Columb, St Austell, Launceston and Truro attended the scene, along with a water carrier from Helston.

"Two breathing apparatus, two hose reels and two covering jets are currently in use to tackle the fire."
