It has emerged a car that crashed on the A30 had only been picked up four hours earlier.

The Volvo went into the back of a lorry at Tedburn St Mary on Saturday.

Police tweeted a photo, saying a driver was trying to figure out cruise control.

No-one was hurt, but the image shows the vehicle was badly damaged.

Posting on Twitter, the Roads Policing Alliance said: "The moral of the story is read your handbook.

"Don't try to figure out Cruise Control by looking down at wheel buttons! New car lasted 4hrs!"

In reply to a comment about 'city safe' mode, they added: "It apparently only works up to 35MPH. Not much use at national speed limit!"
