Residents in Northumberland could be cut off from Rothbury for at least the rest of the year following a landslip in December. Cragend Farm is one property near the town affected by the damaged B6344.
Local councillor Steven Bridgett says the diversion is costly to local people and businesses. The council has applied for a central government grant to help pay for repairs.
