Chaos in Cornwall as storm Aiden strikes hard

Many trees are down and a number of crashes are causing problems on roads around Cornwall as Storm Aiden strikes the county

A yellow weather warning for rain has been in force since midnight and a second one for wind beginning at 6am.

There are now reports of the Helston to Camborne road being blocked in one section this morning, due to a tree that has come down.

One person who tried to pass through the area this morning described it as causing “major disruption” due to two lorries now not being able to get past each other on the narrow road between Praze and Camborne.

Traffic sensors show disruption on the B3303 near Pendarves Road.

There have also been crashes on two sections of the A30 this morning.

The dual carriageway is partially blocked at Chiverton Cross near Truro due to a collision involving two vehicles.

Traffic reports are stating that the crash has taken place on the roundabout itself.

And further up the county one vehicle has been involved in a crash on A30 near the junction with the A38 Launceston Road, at Callywith.

Traffic controller Richard Stent, told Global247news at such time as he took his first break since 5AM said:
