A taxi and a lorry collided on the A39 and a car has hit the wall of a house at High View, say police

Motorists may face heavy rush hour traffic around Bideford this evening (Thursday) after two separate crashes this afternoon.

Police said a taxi and a van had been in collision on the A39 eastbound near the Instow turn off (A386).

One lane is closed while the incident is being cleared, there is diesel on the road and traffic reports suggest there is very heavy congestion.

A second incident at High View near Capern Road has seen a car collide with a wall near a house, with slow traffic in the area.

Police said no injuries have been reported in either incident.
