Fire crews in Newquay have been delayed responding to an emergency incident due to bad parking.

They faced cars parked on double yellow lines that prevented them from reaching the fire they were attending.

They tweeted a photo of parked cars on double yellow lines and cars parked on junctions.

They had been attending an underground electricity fire and are now warning things could be a lot more serious if this was a life or death situation they were responding to.
