Fifteen firefighters have helped cut a man free from wreckage - after a crash in Lanivet.

It happened on Truro Road on Tuesday night.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "A total of fifteen firefighters from Bodmin and Lostwithiel attended a call to a single vehicle road traffic collision on Truro road between the A30 junction and Lanivet.

"On arrival there was one male trapped in the vehicle, crews used crash rescue equipment from the Bodmin rescue tender to free the casualty.

"Once the casualty was freed, firefighters remained on scene making the vehicle safe."
