A carousel in Truro has been completely destroyed after a fire in the early hours of this morning (Friday).

Several people called 999 just after 02.40am reporting a large fire at Lemon Quay.

The first caller said it was smoking badly, but Cornwall Fire's CCTV operator monitored the fire develop very quickly.

Three crews were needed to control and put out the Merry-Go-Round because of its size and what it is made out of.

A fire investigation will also take place.
