The 73-year-old driver of the Ford Fiesta, from Essex, and the 63-year-old driver of the Vauxhall Astra, from Exeter, were both killed.

One woman was pronounced dead at the scene and the second died after being airlifted to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth.

Police are appealing for witnesses to call 101 and quote log number 351 of June 14, 2014.
