A collision between two vehicles caused the A35 Axminster to be closed for around two hours - but the A-road has now re-opened.

The incident took place at 11.40am this morning (Monday), between Fern Lane in Offwell and Hutgate Road in Honiton.

Two people sustained minor injuries in the collision, which involved a Peugeot 207 and a Honda Civic.

Both vehicles were badly damaged and police had sealed off the road, sparking long queues and heavy congestion for Shute-bound motorists.

Paramedics were also at the scene.

There is still congestion around the area as traffic slowly returns to normal.
