Drivers urged not to travel unless absolutely necessary

Police are urging drivers in East Devon to not travel unless absolutely necessary.

Snow is still falling in the area, making driving conditions extremely hazardous - motorists are being advised only to make essential journeys.

Road conditions are said to be difficult anywhere east of Honiton – particularly on the A375 Honiton to Sidmouth Road and the A3052 in the Seaton area.

Officers have dealt with a number of minor collisions.
