UPDATE: Petrol station reopens after motorist drives into pump
A BARNSTAPLE petrol station was closed on Sunday morning after a car drove into one of the pumps knocking it over.
Sainsbury's petrol station at Roundswell closed just after 10.30am.
A fire crew from Barnstaple attended the scene as a precautionary measure but left after ensuring the petrol pumps had automatically shut down.
It is believed no one was injured during the incident.
Staff at Sainsbury's then took measures to ensure it was safe to reopen the station. The broken pump is awaiting maintenance.
