A village road will be closed in south Leicestershire, after a water leak.

Leicestershire County Council Highways has agreed to the emergency closure of part of Eastgate, in the village of Hallaton, north-east of Market Harborough.

The closure is required opposite the Bewicke Arms public house in the village. The road will be closed from 7am on Tuesday, January 5, for two days.

This will allow Severn Trent Water carry out emergency repairs to the leak. During the closure the alternative route will be via High Street, and the unaffacted part of Eastgate.
