EDGAR Street is now re-open after the emergence of a hole closed the road yesterday.

Police closed the Worcester road, in Sidbury, yesterday around 12.30pm, but a Worcestershire County Council spokeswoman has confirmed the road is now re-opened.

The spokeswoman said: "Worcestershire Highways were alerted to a void in Edgar Street Monday afternoon. "There was an emergency road closure in place and we are currently investigating the cause of the problem together with partners including Severn Trent.

"The road may closed again yet as the cause of the void in the road is still unknown."
