Two children and their parents have been rushed to hospital after carbon monoxide flooded through their home near Launceston.

Paramedics were called to Canworthy Water in the early hours of Wednesday morning after the family said they were not feeling well.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "An appliance from Launceston and a Wholetime Officer attended a property in Canworthy Water on the request of the Ambulance Service due to occupants feeling unwell due to possible carbon monoxide poisoning.

"On arrival crews used a gas detector which indicated high readings of carbon monoxide within the property.

"Two adults and two children were taken to hospital by ambulance, whilst crews made the property safe by venting using a positive pressure ventilation fan.

"Crews also fitted two smoke detectors within the property."
