An overturned tanker has shut part of the A30.

It is closed in both directions between Victoria and Bodmin and police warn it is set to stay that while for a while.

It is because the tanker is leaking onto the road - although it is not thought to be flammable.

A diversion has been set up but is looking busy.

Police, firecrews and paramedics are at the scene. There are no reported injuries.

The accident happened just before 8am on Monday morning, blocking both lanes eastbound.
