Recycling collection vehicles were unable to access rural areas of East Devon this morning due to adverse weather conditions.
East Devon District Council’s (EDDC) recycling vehicles could not access areas around Honiton - including Dunkeswell, Yarcombe and Stockland.
The county was hit by a UK-wide polar vortex overnight, with rural areas hit hardest.
The Met Office has given a yellow warning of snow and ice for later this week.
The council said it aims to make catch up collections for the areas affected as soon as possible.
