A fire started at a busy Callington supermarket is branded "arson".

Crews were scrambled to Tesco just before seven o'clock on Wednesday evening.

Staff fought back the flames on the toilet roll aisle using fire extinguishers - before firefighters got a hose on it.

Customers have taken to Twitter to tell how they were turned away as emergency services arrived.

An investigation is now underway.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "Firefighters from Callington attended a fire in a supermarket on Moss Side Industrial Estate.

"On arrival crews stated there had been a fire involving the toilet roll aisle.
