Fallen tree halts traf­fic

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

A road was shut for more than seven hours in both di­rec­tions due to a fallen tree.

The A251 Faver­sham Road at Chal­lock was closed on Thurs­day at Buck Street, at about 7.35am. Pow­er­lines were re­port­edly down but UK Power Net­works con­firmed that no power out­ages have been logged in the area. It caused a build-up of traf­fic be­tween A252 and Sandy­hurst Lane. There were signed di­ver­sions in place. High­ways of­fi­cials con­firmed the road fi­nally re­opened at about 2.55pm.
