A man has died after a crash on the A39 near Falmouth and another is seriously hurt.

It is after a van and car collided on the Treluswell roundabout at around 9am this morning.

Police officers along with fire and ambulance crews were scrambled to the two-vehicle smash.

A white Mercedes Sprinter van and a silver Ford Focus were involved in the collision.

The driver of the Ford Focus, who is believed to be in his twenties, has died and his family are being told.

His passenger has suffered serious injuries and is still in Treliske.

The two occupants of the van were relatively unharmed.

The stretch of road was reopened at 9.40pm on Monday night.

As well as carrying out an investigation into the cause of the crash teams also had to clear up a large amount of spilled diesel.

Police are appealing for witnesses who saw what happened or either of the vehicles.
