Avon and Somerset Constabulary has closed the A370 in North Somerset to allow the air ambulance to land after a pedestrian was seriously injured in an accident involving a lorry.

The accident occurred at about 10am in Station Road, Congresbury and the police have shut the A370 between junction 21 of M5 (Weston-super-Mare) and the village centre.

Emergency services are on the scene, including the air ambulance.

An Avon and Somerset Constabulary spokesman said: “We have closed the A370 between junction 21 of the M5 and the junction of Bristol Road/Smallway in the centre of Congresbury.

“This follows a serious road traffic collision between a lorry and a pedestrian at about 10am in Station Road.

“An air ambulance is at the scene.

“The closures are likely to remain in place for some time.”

Bristol Airport is advising passengers to leave extra time to get to the terminal as a result.
