Near misses after Somerset M5 junction traffic light changes

The timing of traffic lights on a newly redeveloped roundabout is to be changed following a series of traffic collisions since it opened.

The Huntworth roundabout off junction 24 of the M5 at Bridgwater, Somerset, was opened last month after a £2.9m improvement.

Drivers have been seen driving through red traffic lights and a number of accidents have been reported. The council said it would alter the phasing of the lights.
