Two separate crashes in Plymouth are causing congestion problems near the city centre this afternoon.

The first collision was called in to police at 4pm, and occurred just outside the Britannia pub on Outland Road.

A gold Ford Focus crashed on the outbound lane leaving the car a potential write off, said police.

The two males in the car were not injured.

One lane was blocked and traffic in the area is reportedly very delayed.

The second crash took place just ten minutes later at 4.10pm on Alma Road outside the Milehouse bus depot.

A red Rover 45 and a black Piaggio moped collided leaving the motorcyclist with a suspected broken wrist.

Police, a fire crew and an ambulance attended the outbound lane of the carriageway.

Plymouth police's D section (@PlymPoliceDsec) took to Twitterat 5:25pm to alert drivers: "RTC's dealt with on #almaroad, #outlandroad. Road open and clearing so backlog should ease up soon but still busy."

Police said there is "traffic chaos" in the area, with tailbacks from the Pennycomequick roundabout.
