High winds causing traffic disruption


Many fallen trees

Devon and Cornwall Police have received multiple calls this morning, from across both counties, re disruption caused due to the high winds being experienced at the moment. We have had over 20 reports in the last 2 hours alone, mostly about fallen trees blocking roads, but also other debris causing highway disruption, including a fallen billboard in Plytmstock.

Members of the public are urged to drive with care and vigilance this morning. Please reduce speed and anticipate what obstruction might be around that next bend. Please also report traffic issues so that we can assist in clearance as soon as possible. Highways England and other partners are working very hard at the moment to keep both counties moving.
