A ROAD in Ilminster is set to close for five days to allow urgent roadworks to be carried out.

Blackdown View will be shut off from traffic from June 10 to June 14 (midnight to 11.59pm). This will allow Wessex Water to repair a leaking valve.

The company has indicated that no access will be granted for emergency services through the site, according to a post on the Ilminster Town Council Facebook page.

To inquire about the closure, contact Wessex Water on 0345 600 4600, quoting reference: ttro558940S.
