A RING road junction leading to Kidderminster town centre has been blocked due to roadworks.

Repair work is being carried out by Severn Trent Water on Coventry Street, near to the roundabout leading to the ring road - drivers are being diverted around the ring road to the junction with Blackwell Street to access services such as shops, the Swan Centre Car Park and The Shuttle office.

Bus services to the area have also been affected, with operator Diamond Buses tweeting: "Due to a road closure in Kidderminster we are currently unable to serve Blackwell Street on the 2, 292, 4 and 5 services.

"Passengers for these services should use the main town hall stops until further notice. Thank you."

The works are due to finish at during the day on Wednesday.
