Residents in the Chantry area of Ipswich are being asked to put their bins out early - to avoid crews getting caught up in the commotion of the weekend’s big Ed Sheeran concerts.

Ipswich Borough Council is asking people living in the area to put their bins out the Thursday evening before the collection on Friday, August 23 so crews can collect the rubbish in good time.

An Ipswich Borough Council spokesman said: "We ask people to be prepared and put their bins out on Thursday evening so that we can ensure all bins are collected as normal without disruption.

"We thank you in advance for your cooperation."

The weekend's concerts have meant Hadleigh Road will be closed from noon on Friday, August 23 until 1am on Tuesday, August 27 while one carriageway of London Road will be closed for use as contraflow.
