The North Devon Gazette has reported a serious collision on the A39 earlier. My daughter did mention a diversion in place through Woolsery, and long delays. It seems the collision was ‘head on’ and occurred just before 11am between the B3237 Clovelly roundabout and Bideford Bay Caravan Park; it involved a Vauxhall Astra and a BMW.
Three people were reported as airlifted to hospital, including the driver of the Astra, taken to Derriford with serious injuries, and 2 adults and 2 children in the BMW to North Devon District Hospital. The adults were said to have serious injuries; the children were not seriously injured.
The area is best avoided as investigations will be ongoing.
