A SECTION of the A1101, before Four Gotes, is currently closed due to a collision this morning (Monday).

At 7.25am, a silver Mitsubishi Carisma was in collision with an electricity pylon, bringing it down.

The male driver and female passenger were released by firefighters, who had to cut off the roof of the car to reach them.
