Road shut after slurry lorry crash

The A30 was closed in one direction after a tanker carrying slurry overturned

A tanker carrying as much as 3,000 gallons of slurry has overturned, closing a road in Cornwall, police have said.

Emergency services were called to the scene on the A30 at Scorrier, near Redruth, Cornwall at 10.20am on Monday after a collision was reported on the eastbound slip road.

A second tanker is currently clearing up the lorry's "load", Devon and Cornwall Police said.

The Exeter-bound carriageway of the A30 is closed but is likely to reopen later.
