Kidderminster road closed after sewer collapse

The discovery of a collapsed sewer has led to a road closure being extended in Kidderminster.

A spokesman for Worcestershire County Council said the A451 Horsefair was due to reopen on 8 July after resurfacing work was finished.

But following the discovery by road crews the closure was extended over the weekend to allow for repairs by Severn Trent Water.

The spokesman said it was hoped the road would reopen on Monday.

"Motorists and residents are again being thanked for their patience while these essential works take place," he added.
