The cars collided heading into town, close to Hutton Moor Leisure Centre.

Firefighters, paramedics and police officers are at the scene.

Queues are beginning to form in the area as motorists battle to find an alternative route to reach Weston town centre.

Traffic is already stacking back over Flowerdown Bridge and to the Airport Roundabout, where the A370 meets the A371.
