Seventeen people including two paramedics are taken to hospital after a carbon monoxide scare in West Cornwall.

Crews were scrambled to Riviera Produce near Connor Downs at lunchtime, after staff started showing symptoms.

Forty people had to be evacuated.

Firefighters had to use a gas detector to find the source.

Officials say the building is now safe, and staff are back at work.

Initial investigations indicate that the leak began in a faulty forklift truck. Safety experts are being brought in to examine it.

None of those taken to Treliske for checks suffered serious complications.
