One person has been left with life-changing injuries after two cars collided near Little Torrington yesterday (Friday).

Two people were rushed to hospital after the serious collision between a van and a car.

Police were called at 4pm and the road was closed and the injured were taken to hospital at Derriford and North Devon District Hospital.
