Police are appealing for CCTV or dash cam footage to help their investigation into the collision which happened before 7am on Tuesday on the B3124 in Walton-in-Gordano.

A white Ford Focus and a blue Toyota Yaris collided on the road and police are hoping footage will reveal what happened before, during and after the incident.

The Focus was travelling to Clevedon and the Yaris to Portishead.

A man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs, dangerous driving and possession of a class A drug.

He has been released while investigations are carried out.

A police spokesman said: “We are especially keen to hear from two lorry drivers reportedly travelling towards Portishead at around the time.

“The Yaris was on its roof when emergency services arrived,

“Fire crews had to free the woman driver. She is now recovering at home after hospital treatment.”

Anyone with any information or footage should call 101 and quote reference number 5219004704.
