A crash on the A370 near Weston which left one person with a 'severe' leg injury prompted a warning from police.

The incident, on the busy route this evening (Monday, February 7), saw a driver 'reported driving without due care and attention', according to the Avon and Somerset Police Roads Policing Unit. 

They said the crash caused 'big disruption' but 'all parties okay'.

However, the incident prompted a warning for those travelling as a front seat passenger.

"Please don't do this, don't let passengers do it. Spread the word. It's only 'comfy' if it doesn't go wrong."
