A LORRY with a burst tyre has caused traffic chaos in Barnstaple this morning (Tues).

Police closed the Braunton-bound carriageway of Victoria Road and Belle Meadow Road around 9.45am after a lorry burst its tyre on the roundabout outside the Taw Ford garage.

A fitter was called to the scene to replace the rear, nearside tyre and the road was reopened at 11.15am.

On Twitter, @TawFord said: “Lorry outside the showroom has been moved but traffic is still heavy and moving very slowly #barnstaple #ndevon”.
