There have been reports of a 'loud boom' being heard in St Ives.

Locals say it sounded like an explosion in the town on Monday lunchtime.

Other people think it may have been a sonic boom - but there is no word yet on what actually caused it.

Claire has a beauty salon there, she told Pirate FM: "I heard a loud bang that sounded like an explosion.

"I went outside to see if I could find out what it was.

"People were coming out of the shop and house next door.

"Everyone heard it but no one had any idea where it came from."
