Two adults and two children taken to hospital as a precaution

The Muddiford road between Barnstaple and Ilfracombe has been blocked this morning after two cars collided.

Two adults and two children were taken to hospital by ambulance for a check up but police said there didn’t appear to be any serious injuries.

It happened near Bittadon at around 9.30am and a Honda Civic from Gloucestershire and a Nissan Primera from Barnstaple were involved.

Police said the road remained closed between Shirwell Cross (at the Barnstaple end) and Plaistow Mills.

The fire service attended and made both vehicles safe.
