Main route into Pembrokeshire may not reopen until midnight, police say

The A40 between Haverfordwest and Canaston Bridge has been closed following a serious collision earlier this afternoon.

Two vehicles are understood to have been involved.

Dyfed-Powys Police have said that the road - one of the main routes into Pembrokeshire - could be closed until midnight.

The travel situation is likely to be made worse by the fact that the Cleddau Bridge is currently closed to high sided vehicles due to the strong winds hitting the county.

Hope everyone is ok.
But this does raise the prominent issue... What would you do in this exact situation if you were pregnant and need emergency care?

A VERY good point, but the decision is made by managers brought in from England - one could be VERY cynical and wonder If it was a deliberate decision as a few deaths attributed to these decisions would make it nigh impossible for local pembs managers to remain in their jobs due to the out cry (and their families would have a bad time possibly)

r perhaps in the day, not at night
and not when the weather is bad (which is when the Cleddau bridge also closes)
