MOTORISTS travelling between Hexham and Allendale are facing a four-week road closure.

Northumberland County Council has closed the B6304 near Langley, with the order in place from Monday, February 18 until March 18, between 7am and 5pm.

The closure has been requested by Euroforest, so that the company can carry out tree felling safely.

Traffic can detour using the B6305 and B6295, while access for residents, businesses, and emergency services is being maintained.
