Sometimes, I hate putting out certain news, and this is one of those so sad days.
Police have confirmed that two children and a woman, believed to be their mother, have died as a result of the collision this morning [Monday 31 July] on the A361 near Landkey Junction, Barnstaple.
Emergency services were called at 8.25am to the A361, near Aller Cross at Barnstaple following a two vehicle collision between a car and a lorry.
A road closure has been put on at West Buckland junction and the Landkey junction on the A361 whilst officers conduct scene investigations. The closure is likely to be on all day and motorists are being advised to avoid the area.
The carriageway was also closed in both directions to allow the Air Ambulance to land.
If anyone witnessed this incident, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101 quoting 0125 of the 31st July.
