Nearly 230 bags of litter have been collected from the North Devon Link Road in just four days of a three-week clean-up operation.

North Devon Council said 229 bags were collected between Torridge Bridge in Bideford and the Portmore Roundabout in Barnstaple since Monday.

It has warned motorists using the A361 to take care when disposing of rubbish.

The work is part of an annual operation to clear 34 miles (55km) of road between Torridge Bridge and Tiverton.

Drivers could be fined up to £2,500 and face court if they are caught dropping litter, the council said.
