Cornwall's most dangerous roads have been revealed.

The government launched a new online map on Thursday, showing where collisions and accidents had happened between 2005 and 2011.

There were 25 fatal crashes on the A30 in that time.

You can check what happened on the routes near you by looking at the map.

People can also compare road safety statistics for Cornwall against those of other local authorities.

Road Safety Minister Stephen Hammond, said: "This new comparison website will give local residents a more accurate picture of their council's performance in reducing road casualties and will allow councils to make more meaningful assessments of the work they are doing to improve road safety.

"If a council is performing particularly well then I want to see them sharing best practice with others so that they can improve and people across the South West can benefit.

"In addition, the Road Safety Observatory will be a valuable resource for all those with an interest in road safety by providing a one-stop-shop for road safety research."
