A SECTION of a road through the village of Staplegrove will be temporarily closed to traffic later this month.

Vehicles will be prohibited from travelling along a 45-metre stretch of Rectory Road from its junction with Manor Road.

The closure will last 24 hours a day from Thursday, January 20, until Sunday, January 24, according to Somerset County Council.

It will enable Jurassic Fibre to carry out cabling works.
