There's been disruption in Bodmin after roadworks closed all three main roads into the town centre.

The works are part of a £7.5 million project to turn it into a so-called 'cycle town' over the next nine months.

But businesses protesting against the plans say they will result in a loss of trade.

The Council insists that "Building a Better Bodmin" will be a good thing.

At around 11.30am the Pound Lane, Church Lane and Priory Road junctions had become blocked - vehicles could neither move forward or reverse.
