The A379 Teignmouth Road in Dawlish is partially blocked in both directions between the John Nash Drive junction and the Fordens Lane junction, because of a landslip.

There is also slow traffic on the A377 inbound in Exeter from Alphington Junction to Exe Bridges.

However, the good news is that the earlier lane closure on A38 Haldon Hill westbound between the A380 junction in Kenn and the B3344 junction in Heathfield due to a broken down vehicle has now cleared.
