A large pothole that closed a road between two villages is due to be repaired in the coming days, Devon County Council has said.

The six-foot hole appeared on an unnamed road between Crediton and Newbuildings.

Farmer Richard Cheriton said it had had a "major impact" on villagers.

"We're struggling to get out of the farm with tankers and tractors, and for farm deliveries it has been a real calamity," he said.

A spokesman for Devon County Council said repairs would be carried out in the next few days and the road resurfaced.
