Police in Ilfracombe posted on Twitter to say that people were coming from all over the country to visit the area’s beaches and urged people not to visit.
In a tweet, the force wrote: “Roads towards the north Devon coast are now gridlocked. We have vehicles from all over the country identified, please do not travel here.”
“We will still be here when this is over so come back when it’s safe to do so.”
A post from Barnstaple Police warned motorists their cars could be towed away if necessary.
“Traffic wardens are running out of tickets”, the post read.
“Do not abandon your cars emergency vehicles can’t get though! They will be towed away!”
