A ROAD in Worcester has re opened after it was blocked due to overnight roadworks.

Rainbow Hill was blocked northbound due to overrunning overnight emergency roadworks from B4637 Lowesmoor Place/Tolladine Road to Belmont Street/Lansdowne Road.

Drivers were being prevented from heading out of Worcester on this stretch.

The Worcestershire County Council Highways team confirmed the incident had been resolved and that Rainbow Hill is now open again.
