TRAFFIC was brought to a standstill in Shaldon on Friday (March 24) after two cars collided - with one smashing into railings.

A black Ford Focus and a Renault van were involved just after 1pm on Friday, blocking Ringmore Road in the village.

Neither of the drivers needed serious medical attention but were given the once over by paramedics at the scene.

Both vehicles were recovered and the road was re-opened by 4pm.
