Pirate FM has been told drivers in Cornwall are putting lives at risk by ignoring emergencies or roadworks.

When a tanker spilled petrol across the road at Tideford motorists moved cones and sped through risking an explosion.

At the time MPC Darren Maynard told us it beggared belief. He said: "When you obviously have a fuel spillage to this extent, it only needs for somebody, a motorcyclist, to fall off and create a spark and we would have more of a major incident than we've already got."

During the floods others drove across hoses being used to pump out homes.

At the time firefighter Grant Nicholls told us it was like the water was not there.

He said: "We were faced with quite a substantial amount of surface water collected on the main highway here. And in some places, up to about three to four feet, and a vehicle did try to get through and did break down.
