Gridlock reported as a second bridge incident adds to North Devon commuter chaos

Police say the Torridge Bridge on the A39 at Bideford is partially blocked after a collision involving four cars.

Reports came in at around 4.30pm and it happened between the A386 Heywood Road roundabout and the A386 Instow turn off.

Police said one person had been taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The collision is likely to add to rush hour chaos, especially around Barnstaple where the Taw Bridge has been closed to deal with a police incident.

Recovery work on the bridge is still ongoing.
