UPDATE 1845 hrs – Scene cleared. Road opened. May be some delays until traffic gets flowing again
Friday 4th May:
It has been reported to us on Twitter and Facebook that the top end of Longbridge Lane (between Groveley Lane / Cofton Road and Redditch / Birmingham Road) has been closed by police following a serious accident.
Residents report that the road has been closed since around 5pm and traffic is backing up down to Hopwood, West Heath and Longbridge.
Police are diverting traffic and one resident was told the delays could be in place for several hours.
Please find an alternative route if you can. Some local residents are being allowed access.
Will provide updates and more information as we get it.
