Police thank public as South West roads remain quiet

Police have thanked people who stayed at home over this long Easter Bank Holiday weekend as the motorways an A roads in the region remained incredibly quiet despite it being Easter Monday.

There were still some, however, who didn't get the message to stay home. A campervan from Bristol was stopped and turned back on its way through Devon.
