Two people suffered injuries after being involved in a car crash on the A35 yesterday.

The car crash happened near Loughwood Lane, between Wilmington and Kilmington, just west of Axminster, at 4.20pm on Thursday, January 11, which led to both people being taken to hospital.

The vehicle was the only one involved in the incident and the injuries were not thought to be serious, according to police.
