Update: The road has reopened. It's understood a HGV was recovered yesterday, and its load this evening. 

A HEREFORDSHIRE road is temporarily closed this evening (March 31).

Herefordshire Council say that the B4224 will be shut between Fownhope and the Old Gore crossroads while recovery work is taking place.

It is understood that it's because of a crash that happened yesterday morning (March 30). The incident resulted in heavy traffic before the road was cleared by 1.10pm.


Later that afternoon, the council reported that the road would be closed due to recovery work taking place. Therefore, the latest post on its social media pages saying that the same thing is happening this evening may be a duplicate. 

There was also a crash on the A465 yesterday. This happened near Wormbridge and involved a van and two cars. 

A fire service spokesperson told the Hereford Times that three casualties were left in the care of the ambulance service.

Meanwhile, there were also reports of a crash on the A49 at Llangua.
