A call from a young boy in Cornwall to say his home was on fire and his mum, dad and sister were trapped inside has been revealed to be a hoax.

Crews from Truro and St Dennis were scrambled to Tregony on Monday night.

Officers tell us the call was made from a phone box on Fore Street but when they arrived in the village, there were no signs of a fire.

It is understood that similar hoax calls have been made to the ambulance service in the last few days too.

Last night's call came at the same time as the control team was trying to deal with reports of people trapped following a crash in Bodmin.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service is urging parents to talk to their children about the dangers.
