A fallen tree caused by a landslide has caused a closure on Torrs Park Road.

A road in Ilfracombe is closed after a landslip caused a fallen tree to block the road.

The landslip has caused Torrs Park Road at the Uppers Torrs junction to be closed.

Hugh Griffin, highways control centre manager for Devon County Council said on Twitter at 6.50am this morning: “Torrs Park Road closed in Ilfracombe, large bank collapse with large tree now a danger. A tree surgeon will look at it today @DevonRoads”

Motorists are advised to seek an alternative route.
