A trial switch-off of a set of traffic lights in Cheltenham has been postponed after a sewer collapsed.

The St Margaret's Road lights were due to have been turned off for three weeks from Monday to try to cut congestion.

Cheltenham Borough Council has decided to delay the trial because the route is currently being used as a diversion for traffic avoiding the road works.

The county council says the scheme will begin on 5 November when the repairs to the sewer in Bath Road are complete.
