A busy road in Sudbury is due to be closed for emergency repairs after a stretch of the street subsided.

A part of Newton Road will be shut for safety reasons said a spokesman from the Suffolk Highways authority.

It has meant that the East Street drainage works will not start until the work in Newton Road has been carried out.

Whilst the road closure is in place, there will be no access/egress from Chelsea Road and Ingram Wells Road, as the affected area is in the middle of the junction.

There is likely to be disruption and delays during peak times.
