A lorry driver has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after a crash that killed two cyclists.
Both of the male cyclists died at the scene of the crash with the white Renault lorry on the A30 in Newquay, Cornwall, at around 8.30am yesterday.
The bikes and the lorry were in the eastbound carriageway when the accident happened.
One of the men killed was a 48-year-old from Scotland, and his family are being told. Officers are trying to identify the other cyclist.
