Major traffic queues after tree falls on A38

A major Cornish road has been closed in both directions after a large tree fell across the carriageway. 

Police say a van then crashed into it while travelling on the A38 near Doublebois.

Highways England confirmed it was affecting traffic between Liskeard and Bodmin and sparked long delays.

Diversions were put in place across rush-hour but the road has since reopened.
