A man, woman and child have been treated by paramedics after a carbon monoxide scare in Cornwall.

Firefighters were scrambled to Bugle first thing on Friday morning.

Crews used special monitoring equipment to take a reading.

Although that came back as zero, the team from St Austell called for an ambulance just to make sure everyone was OK.

"At 08:57 Critical Control received a 999 call reporting suspected carbon monoxide poisoning. 

"One appliance was immediately mobilised from St Austell Community Fire Station. 

"On arrival crews used gas monitoring equipment to locate any carbon monoxide present. 

"Although the crew found a reading of zero, an ambulance was called to care for a male and female as well as a child. 

"Crews waited until the arrival of an ambulance before leaving the scene".
