A ROAD which was closed after a crack appeared along it will remain shut until September.

The B4349 in Kingstone was shut on August 12 after a 30-foot crack appeared near the Lagan Homes site, Herefordshire Council said.

Lagan Homes has now updated local residents and said the road will remain closed until September 1 while they repair the damage.

There will still be no traffic access from the B4352 to the B4348 via this road, from Kingstone Academy to Low Field Meadow.
