An Emergency Road Closure has been put in place on the B7068 Lockerbie to Langholm road.

The route has been closed due to structural damage on one of the bridges on the route.

The road is expected to be closed for two to three weeks.

Dumfries and Galloway Council say repair works cannot begin until the water level drops to allow for further investigative work to take place.

A diversion has been put in place from the B722 (Eaglesfield) road and the B7076 (Lockerbie) road.
