Police have confirmed a man who suffered serious injuries after a collision on the A30 in Cornwall has died.

A pedestrian and a car were involved near Tolvaddon, early on Monday morning.

A woman was also treated at the scene, after it shut the road in both directions.

The westbound carriageway remains closed for investigation work across rush hour, but has since reopened.

Police have now confirmed that a man, seriously injured in the collision, has died.

The collision caused long tailbacks in the area and around Chiverton Cross roundabout.

Bus passengers were also warned to expect delays, because of the diversion routes.

Both carriageways have since reopened but Inrix Traffic and Travel is still reporting slow traffic.

"Slow traffic due to earlier serious accident involving car and a pedestrian on A30 Westbound from A3047 (Avers Roundabout, Cornwall) to A3047 (Camborne West, Camborne).

"All lanes have been reopened following the accident around 5:20am".
