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.
