Listeners told Pirate FM it was affecting traffic coming from the town, Helston, Longrock and Marazion.

"There has been an accident on the roundabout that links Penzance, Helston, Longrock and Marazion.

"No emergency services yet, accident happened coming onto the A30 towards Penzance.

"There are several other cars stopped causing tale backs in every direction".
