THE main road between Hereford and Abergavenny was closed this morning.

Drivers were advised to avoid the A465 near the turn to the Tram Inn earlier this morning due to a crash between a car and a motorbike.

The ambulance service was called just after 7am and paramedics were joined by a BASICS doctor from the Mercia Accident Rescue Scheme.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said one man was taken to hospital. A short while ago, the fire service said the vehicles had been made safe and the carriageway close to Lock's Garage was clear.
