The main road which connects Banwell to Weston-super-Mare has been closed by police this afternoon (Monday).

Woolvershill Road has been closed between Banwell junction and Summer Lane due to a fallen tree.

Avon and Somerset police have closed the road in both directions and are waiting for assistance from North Somerset Council and Western Power Distribution.

A spokesman from the power company said: “We have had a report of branches touching one of our lines in Woolvershill Road.

“The police have closed the road for safety and engineers are on route.

“We have had nobody confirm they are off supply at the moment.”
