FOUR women were taken to hospital after their car rolled and veered off a road near Ilfracombe late last night.
The women were taken to North Devon District Hospital by ambulance after the grey Renault Laguna overturned near the Foxhunters Garage at West Down on the A361.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said the passengers did not have serious injuries. She said: "All four women appeared to have minor injuries. They were taken to North Devon District Hospital as a precaution. The car went out of control, rolled and veered off the road."

It is believed water ran off a nearby field and froze on the road. The Highways department gritted the road and put icy warning signs shortly after.
A fallen tree was blocking the road but it is not known whether this was the cause of the accident.
The road was opened at 1.05am this morning. The vehicle is registered to an Ilfracombe keeper.
