Two police officers were taken to hospital after an early morning crash in Carmarthenshire.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the collision involved a police vehicle and a lorry on the A4138 at 02:40 BST on Wednesday.

The two officers had minor injuries and have since been discharged.

The M4 slip road at Hendy and the A4138 between Talyclun and Hendy were closed while investigations took place, leading to tailbacks. Both roads were open by 08:30.

The driver of the lorry was unhurt.

Police are appealing for witnesses.
