Police are appealing for witnesses following a ‘serious’ two-car collision on the A30 at Clyst Honiton near to Exeter Airport.

A 48-year-old woman passenger from Ottery St Mary was taken to hospital with life-threatening multiple injuries and is in a critical condition after the car she was travelling in was involved in a head-on collision in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police said the collision took place at around 12.25am and involved a silver Vauxhall Astra and a silver Seat Altea.
