Fallen tree currently blocking the A386 Bideford to Littleham road
A FALLEN tree is causing traffic to build up on a road near Landcross.
The A386 Bideford to Littleham road is currently closed in both directions. Police are at the scene controlling the traffic flow.
The fallen tree is believed to be at least 1.5ft in circumference at the widest point and is too big to be removed by hand.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "An articulated lorry may have knocked the tree down on its way through and then left the scene.
