A man has died following a road accident on the A39 earlier this month.

Samuel Thomas from Redruth was driving the Rover 25 involved in a two-vehicle collision at Beccott Cross near Arlington on Tuesday, July 9.

The 77-year-old's car collided with a black Land Rover Freelander.

He and a passenger were both taken to hospital, but police have since been informed that Mr Thomas died in hospital on Monday, July 15, as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
