Drivers are being asked to avoid Lower Howsell Road while repair work is carried out.

The road is closed between Marlborough Gardens and Oakfield road.

A diversion route is in place via Leigh Sinton Road, A449 Worcester Road and Lower Howsell Road.

The closure is so engineers can trace and fix a leak on a gas pipe on Lower Howsell Road.

There is no information at the moment on when the work will be completed but they will be working over the weekend.

We will bring you updates are more information emerges.
