An inquest opens today into a crash on the A39 at Cannington, which killed four people. It happened last June when two cars collided head-on. A man and woman died at the scene, and another man and woman died in hospital.
Safety campaigners said the crash was another reason not to build a new power station at Hinkley Point nearby. They argue the A39 at Cannington is already too busy.
