A man has died in a multi-vehicle collision on the A3088 in Somerset.

Emergency services were called to the Cartgate link road, near Stoke-sub-Hamdon, following reports of the collision on Tuesday morning.

The road between the junction with the A303 and the Garadore roundabout was closed while the accident was investigated.

Avon and Somerset Police confirmed the road had been re-opened at about 13:00 BST.

Several vehicles were involved in the collision and the emergency services spent much of the morning at the scene while the circumstances of the accident were investigated.

Traffic in the immediate area has now returned to normal after long delays were reported earlier.

"Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact police," a force spokesman said.
