A MAN has been airlifted to hospital with “possibly life-changing” leg injuries after his car careered off the road into woodland near Quintrell Downs this afternoon.

The Cornish Guardian understands the man was on his way to visit his girlfriend in Newquay when the accident happened at around 12.50pm. No other vehicles were involved.
A police spokeswoman said: “A 20-year-old male was removed from the vehicle with serious leg injuries. They are not life-threatening, but possibly life-changing.”
