A three-car pile-up closed a major South East Cornwall road for more than an hour.

Several people were taken to hospital following the crash on the A38 near Liskeard, said police.

A force spokesman said the collision had involved a silver Honda Jazz, a green Nissan Micra and a white Fiat Punto.

The smash happened at around 8pm on Tuesday outside the Trago Mills superstore.

The road was closed in both directions until around 9.30pm as emergency services worked at the scene.

The police spokesman said nobody had suffered serious injuries in the incident, though several people required hospital treatment.

    So long as that place is where it is there will inevitably be accidents due to the nature of the road and the volume of trafiic. Situated in a valley, i do not believe they is much that can be done to widen the road let alone build a roundabout. Perhaps the solution would be to re locate the premises or close it down, I know it has been there for years but I am guessing if something that size were to be set up today then it would not get planning permission.

    Going off topic somewhat, why do reporters insist on describing what clothing an accused is wearing as he stands in the court dock??? Only ask, because in another 'erald story (on which comments are not allowed for obvious reasons) the 'erald "journalist" (ah-hem) seems to be more interested in the grey t-shirt worn by matey-boy than the actual story itself. What's it all about? Answers on a postcard please.

    @jaberwocky311 where are you going to fit in a roundabout in such a steep sided valley? A new duel carrage way from Dobwalls to Bodmin is required, and that might mean building on stilts over the railway line.
