A tractor trailer has overturned on a busy A30 roundabout in Cornwall.

There was slow traffic in the area at Carland Cross and one lane was left closed.

It happened at the exit heading towards Trispen where the A30 meets the A39.

Police were called to the scene on Tuesday morning and have confirmed that there were no injuries.

A shed load of grain was left strewn across the road and the clean up took most of the afternoon.

Officers say that the grain inside is like a readybreak consistency and a truck has come down from Exeter to suck the grain out.

The road was reopened at 4pm.
