A weekend closure of part of the A12 has been put back a week.

The trunk road at Kelvedon in Essex will now be closed the weekend of 4 and 5 February so that repairs can be made to the Ewell Bridge.

Drivers heading south to London will be taken on a 22-mile detour before rejoining the A12.

Dates of further closures will be announced soon.
