Police are asking motorists to avoid the A371 East Somerset Way between Wells and Shepton Mallet following a serious road traffic collision.

The collision occurred on the Shepton Mallet by-pass about half a mile outside of Wells. The A371 is closed between the A39 Glastonbury Road/Priory Road junction and the B3139. A car and bike were in collision and emergency services are at the scene dealing with the incident. Road closures are in place and are expected to remain in place for some time.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area, find an alternative route and expect their journey to take longer than usual.
