An investigation's underway in Cornwall tonight into the death

:00:12.:00:16.

of a woman whose car crashed off a road and plunged into a reservoir.

:00:17.:00:19.

It's thought the vehicle was in the water near Stithians

:00:20.:00:22.

From the scene, Eleanor Parkinson reports.

:00:23.:00:29.

The car came off this country road which takes you around

:00:30.:00:32.

You can see where the vehicle hit the fence, broke through,

:00:33.:00:36.

It's understood the driver was trapped in the car in the water

:00:37.:00:40.

They were only spotted after the driver of another car saw

:00:41.:00:45.

They were able to call the emergency services.

:00:46.:00:50.

By then, it's thought the driver, a young woman, had been

:00:51.:00:53.

She was taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital but didn't survive.

:00:54.:00:57.

There are a number of houses close by.

:00:58.:01:01.

Residents here say had they heard or seen the accident happen,

:01:02.:01:06.

It's absolutely tragic that we couldn't have helped

:01:07.:01:10.

or anybody couldn't have helped in those circumstances.

:01:11.:01:15.

But we actually only saw the flashing lights.

:01:16.:01:18.

So, we thought something must have happened.

:01:19.:01:29.

But, my husband actually managed to see the emergency vehicles there.

:01:30.:01:31.

It looked like the situation was in hand.

:01:32.:01:33.

The woman has not been named but we spoke to a relative

:01:34.:01:37.

who was at the scene this morning who said he wanted to thank

:01:38.:01:39.

the emergency services for the effort they had made

:01:40.:01:42.

Up to 350 jobs are expected when Ikea finally opens its first

:01:43.:01:51.

Today work started work on the building in Exeter

:01:52.:01:58.

which will be around the same size as Bristol's.

:01:59.:02:03.

Our business correspondent Neil Gallacher reports.

:02:04.:02:06.

Is on the joke territory from the M5 is a vast building site. Today its

:02:07.:02:17.

purpose was advertised. In both houses the region's first IKEA, the

:02:18.:02:22.

nearest is in restore. -- is in Bristol.

:02:23.:02:26.

We've been looking for brands like John Lewis and IKEA

:02:27.:02:30.

for a number of years to underline our credential

:02:31.:02:31.

IKEA is a much bigger draw than all other shops.

:02:32.:02:35.

Plymouth would certainly have liked IKEA.

:02:36.:02:36.

Property experts did try to lure the brand further west.

:02:37.:02:39.

Is this as far west as IKEA is likely

:02:40.:02:46.

to be coming or will you go further down the peninsula at some point,

:02:47.:02:49.

maybe into Cornwall or in the West Devon?

:02:50.:02:51.

We've made a big step coming to the South West into Exeter.

:02:52.:02:54.

I think nothing is set in stone as to what will

:02:55.:02:57.

We went to Truro to see if people were following developments

:02:58.:03:01.

It's something that lots and lots of people want, they use it a

:03:02.:03:07.

lot, you can get it online but it's not the same.

:03:08.:03:10.

I think if it was a bit nearer to us again, it would be

:03:11.:03:13.

Some out-of-town stores should but not this one.

:03:14.:03:22.

If this was a flat pack, it would be more than a coffee

:03:23.:03:25.

The first firm development was back in 2014

:03:26.:03:38.

that was when Exeter planners voted in favour of planning

:03:39.:03:40.

nearly a year to bolt on the section 106.

:03:41.:03:43.

the formal deal that seals the out going concern.

:03:44.:03:46.

It took until the end of last year for the detailed application to be

:03:47.:03:52.

IKEA say they are open to open in the early

:03:53.:03:55.

Four and a half years after getting the planning

:03:56.:04:04.

They are hoping the finished store will have such good

:04:05.:04:08.

environmental credentials that it officially qualifies as excellent

:04:09.:04:14.

We must certainly hope that when they

:04:15.:04:21.

finish the build, they don't have the odds escalator

:04:22.:04:23.

A young man who came runner up in a BBC Spotlight enterprise

:04:24.:04:32.

competition nearly 35 years ago is now running a multi million

:04:33.:04:34.

Luke Furse from Holsworthy says his earthmoving company has

:04:35.:04:39.

worked on almost every road building project in the region.

:04:40.:04:42.

Now the spotlight Young enterprise competition. This was spotlight 34

:04:43.:05:00.

years ago, with Kristen at the helm. Tonight getting competitor is a

:05:01.:05:03.

young man from West Devon whose holding his enterprise and are

:05:04.:05:08.

starting up is less to catch the judges I've. I started a farm and

:05:09.:05:11.

didn't like it, I wanted to be on the machinery. That's where it

:05:12.:05:16.

started. And this is Luke Furse today. I remember the filming crew

:05:17.:05:19.

coming out on filmed me driving my first digger. I think I've got one

:05:20.:05:26.

work man at the time. It was quite an exciting time in those days.

:05:27.:05:28.

Remember the love stories Gospel Bridge and the new age 30 bypass,

:05:29.:05:39.

Luke Furse claims his company have been included in every building road

:05:40.:05:44.

scheme in the south-west, including the Temple bypass. Fasten your seat

:05:45.:05:49.

belts because the day met him, he was running a tractor pulling fun

:05:50.:05:52.

day for his company to raise my for charity. Tractor pulling started in

:05:53.:06:00.

America. Two farmers arguing as to whose horse could pull the most way,

:06:01.:06:06.

the autobahn door, but on the horse and the went with it to solve the

:06:07.:06:12.

argument. That's where it started, with horsepower. Now some of the

:06:13.:06:17.

pillars in the country at 10,000 horsepower. He said it is the

:06:18.:06:20.

world's highest powered motor sport on the sledge creates a 60 tonne

:06:21.:06:27.

drag. This pool isn't cheap to run, it does just one mile to the gallon.

:06:28.:06:31.

It's his favourite toy, a tank he bought 30 years ago. The tank is 15

:06:32.:06:41.

times, it's an armoured personnel carrier, carries 14 trips, powered

:06:42.:06:46.

by Rolls-Royce engine. I asked the successful businessman why has he

:06:47.:06:53.

not retired yet? I enjoy it. My work is still my hobby but I enjoy every

:06:54.:06:55.

day. It's 40 years to the day

:06:56.:06:59.

that the BBC's Antiques Roadshow Today the show was in Somerset

:07:00.:07:01.

kicking off its new series. And as Clinton Rogers reports,

:07:02.:07:05.

the appalling weather Rain, what rain? The queue told its

:07:06.:07:26.

own story. 3000 people went to be deterred from showing off their

:07:27.:07:27.

family treasures. Nice little teddy. come from? I know what was my

:07:28.:07:49.

grandfathers. Well done to the Beatles for hard days night. My son

:07:50.:07:53.

had made quite an effective easier. -- some made an effort. This man

:07:54.:07:59.

from New Zealand who wanted an antiques road show opinion on his

:08:00.:08:05.

bars. We enjoy it, when we were coming I thought that there is a

:08:06.:08:08.

shot on I'd like to come. Just to remind you if you have brought any

:08:09.:08:16.

guns, knives, swords. As for the expense, every show throws up a

:08:17.:08:20.

surprise or two. This morning we had a deactivated bomb from 1930 and now

:08:21.:08:26.

used as a doorstop. It will not go bang! And then there is John, who

:08:27.:08:32.

doesn't bring treasures to be valued, he just likes being in the

:08:33.:08:37.

audience. In fact he's watched 200 live shows. Do you not get bored?

:08:38.:08:42.

No. Everyone is different. Different place, different people. I don't,

:08:43.:08:50.

it's all different. It's 20 years since antique road show last year.

:08:51.:08:55.

It was a working railway station then and so it was today. The

:08:56.:09:03.

timetable stops for now one. -- that timetable stops for nobody. Did

:09:04.:09:10.

Picasso, a hidden gem turn up today? You going to have to wait until the

:09:11.:09:14.

show is broadcast and that will be sometime in the autumn.

:09:15.:09:19.

Good to see the crowds were not put off by the red today, let's see what

:09:20.:09:22.

the weather has in store for us. Pretty wet day for some of us but

:09:23.:09:30.

we've now lost that persistent rain and it's a brighter day for tomorrow

:09:31.:09:32.

but with the risk of showers. The but with the risk of showers. The

:09:33.:09:37.

showers popped up and they can be lively and the odd rumble of thunder

:09:38.:09:41.

perhaps. Away from the showers we should have nice bells of sunshine.

:09:42.:09:45.

This is the weather front that was affecting us, clearing eastwards and

:09:46.:09:48.

in the coming days we have low pressure in the north of the UK and

:09:49.:09:52.

churning up the atmosphere and allowing these showers to develop.

:09:53.:09:55.

Allander showers it should be quite bright. -- other than the showers.

:09:56.:10:03.

Through tonight lingering cloud will clear and starry skies and you might

:10:04.:10:07.

see an isolated shower in the West but most of us will have a dry night

:10:08.:10:11.

and a chilly night than we've seen of late locally down to five or 6

:10:12.:10:16.

degrees. In the started tomorrow morning but a bright morning, lots

:10:17.:10:19.

of sunshine but gradually the showers develop. The shoppers are

:10:20.:10:23.

tricky to pin down exactly but it may be that inland areas will see

:10:24.:10:27.

the lion's share and parts of the north Coast, some fewer showers. A

:10:28.:10:36.

fresher feel than recent days. Basically, it's a case of sunshine

:10:37.:10:39.

and showers as we had through the next few days. Some of the showers

:10:40.:10:42.

may be lively and it should be bright. Pressure over the coming

:10:43.:10:47.

days and about one by Sunday. Have a good night. That's all for tonight,

:10:48.:10:51.

thanks for joining us and from all of us here, have a good night.

:10:52.:10:52.

Goodbye.
