Lost Land Rover found nearly 30 years later

Shifting sands and big tides on a Cornish beach have revealed the remains of a Land Rover that was lost to the sea nearly 30 years ago.

The vehicle was abandoned at Gwithian near Hayle after being driven onto the soft sand in 1990.

The owner had fetched a tractor to pull it out, but the tide arrived first.

A30 Hayle bypass closed both ways due to accident

The A30 Hayle Bypass in Cornwall is closed in both directions and there is queueing traffic due to an accident.

That's between Loggans Moor Roundabout and St Erth Roundabout.

All three emergency services responded to the crash. Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service says one appliance from Hayle and the Rescue Tender from Tolvaddon attended the incident.

It involved one vehicle and there were no persons trapped. Crews made the vehicle safe.
