Residents are being reminded of road closures on Sunday when the Bristol Half Marathon takes place.

The 13.1-mile race, which had more than 16,000 entries last year, starts and finishes at the city's Harbourside.

The route will take participants along the Portway, through the Avon Gorge, and under the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

A council spokesman said there would be a rolling programme of closures, starting from Anchor Road at 0200 BST.

He said park and ride services have been arranged for those taking part and visitors, and affected bus stops will have signs directing commuters to the nearest alternative.

All the roads were expected to reopen by 1600 BST, he added.

Full road closure details can be viewed on the event's website.
