THE Caen Hill dual carriageway in Devizes was closed for two hours after two cars collided on a stretch of road which has seen numerous accidents in recent years.

Police were called just after 5.15pm when a Mercedes A200 and a BMW 320D collided. A police spokesman said: "A woman in her 40s sustained some back and shoulder pain but was seen to by ambulance staff at the scene and did not require hospital attendance.

"The road was closed while the scene was cleared. It was all reopened by 7.30pm."

Parish councils in Rowde and Poulshot earlier this year called for a reduction in the speed limit on the road which goes from 60MPH to 70 MPH.
