A hole the size of a person has opened up in the middle of St Agnes.

Officials say the road has been closed along with part of the one-way system.

It is so experts can carry out an investigation into the two-metre deep hole.

Cormac said: "A 1.6m hole has appeared near Town Hill/British Road junction, St Agnes.

"The area is currently closed to HGVs, and full closure will be used to allow investigations.

"We can't currently confirm when the roads will be reopened."

Inrix Traffic and Travel said: "B3285 closed to heavy goods vehicles due to a large hole at British Road.

"A full closure will be implemented later on to allow for investigations."

They later added: "Town Hill Eastbound closed due to emergency repairs between B3277 Vicarage Road and Quay Road.

"Part of the one-way system through St Agnes is currently closed after a large hole appeared in the road."
