Police have closed a road in Sheffield after workmen uncovered an 'unidentified item'.

Officers were called to Sheffield Road, Tinsley shortly before 10am today and a cordon has been set up as a precaution while specialists investigate.

Properties in the area have been evacuated and motorists are being asked to take alternative routes as there are significant traffic delays.


Week of overnight roadworks in Wragby

Road works are being carried out on the A158 at Wragby from tonight until Sunday 13th July.

The crossroads at Wragby will be closed each night between 7:00pm and 7:00am.

There is a diversion in place that is signposted about five miles away from the road closure. It is about 20 miles in length and takes motorists though Market Rasen.
