Traffic nightmare over as A249 fully re-opens

The main route on the A249 towards Sheppey - which closed for nearly a month because of a huge sinkhole - re-opened today. Local villagers say they're relieved their nightmare is over, but say it's taken to long too sort out and they haven't been kept up to date by Highways England. Andrea Thomas reports. She spoke to councillors Robert Ball and Duncan Dewar-Whalley from Bobbing Parish Council, Andrew Broughton from Highways England and Sittingbourne and Sheppey MP Gordon Henderson.
