A FALLEN branch has closed a road  in the north of the county this morning.

Herefordshire council said the B4362 will remain closed at Shobdon until the large branch blocking the carriageway near the post office has been cleared.

The road is expected to be closed for a couple of hours. Workers with correct equipment are currently en route to the scene.

3pm UPDATE: The road has now re-opened
