A fallen tree has closed a major A-road near Lynton today (Sunday).

A tree has blocked the A39 between Barbrook and Hillsford Bridge.

The closure has caused tailbacks and slow moving traffic in both directions on the B3223 to the B3234 Barbrook Road.

The council has been made aware to clear the tree but it is likely the road will be unaccessible until this evening.
