A car has been ‘completely destroyed’ after a fire at a busy junction near Ottery St Mary this morning (Wednesday, April 18).

Crews have extinguished the fire, which was deemed accidental.

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue spokesman said: “On arrival, crews confirmed vehicle well alight with no persons trapped.
