Bagot Road in St Saviour remains closed this morning, following reports of an explosion yesterday.

Emergency Services closed off the road, after hearing how manhole covers had been blown "25 feet in the air".

Police say access to premises on the road is permitted, and all other roads are open, but traffic remains heavy in the area.

The force says it expects the road to re-open later today.
