The road will be closed in both directions near the corner of Station Square and diversion signs will be put in place. It will be re-opened as soon as it is deemed safe.

The hole is about five metres long and 20cm deep – it was found by Highways Agency contractors during repair work.

A spokesman said: “The Highways Agency and its contractors have been working hard during the day to determine the extent of the hole, however a full overnight road closure is required to fully establish the size and undertake the necessary repairs.”
