An emergency closure is in place on Calbourne Road in Newport this afternoon (Thursday).

Island Roads says it is to enable tree maintenance work to take place.

It comes after a car collided with a tree on the road earlier, as previously reported by Isle of Wight Radio.

It is shut from its junction with Pump Lane to its junction with Betty Haunt Lane.

A diversion will affect Priory Road, Gunville Road, Forest Road, Yarmouth Road, Elm Lane.
