DRIVERS in Sherborne are being warned of delays as a road is to be closed for urgent repairs to a building.

B3145 Long Street will be closed from October 18 due to work being carried out on a building which requires scaffolding to be brought out into the carriageway.

Dorset Council's Highways team has said that two-way traffic flow cannot safely be maintained, and so the road will be closed while the project is carried out.

Works are expected to continue for four to five weeks.
