The A39 has reopened following the third collision in less than seven days, this time a two-vehicle collision at Westleigh.

The A39 was blocked between Bideford and Barnstaple after a collision this morning (Friday).

Police confirmed a two-vehicle crash at Westleigh was reported at 8.20am between a silver Ford Focus and a red Mini.

There were only minor injuries, but the road was blocked causing traffic tailbacks while the vehicles awaited recovery.

This is the third time in the space of a week the road has been blocked due to a collision.

On Saturday five people were hospitalised following a serious collision near Clovelly.

And on Sunday a woman had to be cut from a car following a crash involving a trailer.

The road has now reopened.
