Rovers lose at Portsmouth

Matt Harrold scored both Rovers' goals at Fratton Park.

Bristol Rovers' hopes of avoiding relegation from League Two have suffered a setback after they lost 3-2 at fellow strugglers Portsmouth.

Matt Harrold equalised twice for Rovers after Pompey had led through Adam Webster and Danny Hollands.

But substitute Wes Fogden hit the winner for the hosts twenty minutes from time.

It leaves Rovers third from bottom in League Two, level on points with Northampton, but Rovers have a better goal difference.

Rail line electrification causing chaos in Lyneham

People in Wiltshire say road and bridge closures in the county are causing chaos. Work is taking place ahead of the electrification of the rail line between Bristol and London.

As part of the work one of the main bridges near Lyneham has been closed by Network Rail.

Now three other roads have been shut by the council for safety and people living nearby face diversions of up to 20 miles.
