Part of a Shropshire road that collapsed due to a suspected burst drain will be shut for several days while repairs take place.

Hazledine Way, in Shrewsbury, was closed on Sunday morning after part of it was flooded.

Shropshire Council said a large void had formed beneath the carriageway surface.

Investigations by engineers have started and will be followed by repairs, the council said.

Through traffic is diverted from Meole Brace roundabout, eastbound along Oteley Road and Thieves Lane to Emstrey Island, via London Road to the Column roundabout, and Haycock Way to Pritchard Way, the spokesman added.

Access westbound along Hazledine Way remains unaffected, only the eastbound section has been closed.
