Emergency services are at the scene.

The road is closed from Stumpy Post roundabout to the Mounts and therefore the lanes around the area are busier than usual, causing further issues. 

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "One person has been airlifted to Derriford Hospital with serious injuries.

"Local road closures have been put in place and we ask that road users avoid the area.

"The incident is ongoing."
