Driving conditions ‘treacherous’ in Devon

Motorists have been warned about treacherous conditions on roads in Devon after temperatures plummeted again overnight.

Snow, sleet, rain and severe hail showers have caused several accidents across the county.

The eastbound carriageway of the A38 has been closed at Buckfastleigh after an accident involving a large van.

A police spokesman said there are believed to be injuries, although it is not yet known how serious.

In neighbouring Cornwall, two people died and 47 were injured when a coach crashed on sheet ice near Hayle.
