A 35-year-old man could lose his sight after he was seriously injured in a road rage attack, police have said.

A fight between two male drivers broke out after a sports utility vehicle (SUV) pulled out in front of a van on a slip road in Devon.

The casualty was treated in hospital for serious eye injuries including a broken eye socket.

He added: "The victim could suffer life-changing injuries as a result."

The incident happened at about 09:00 GMT on the 24 March at the A38 Woodpecker Junction, at South Brent.
