Melbury Abbas HGV restrictions call over 'village jams'

Residents in a Dorset village are calling for restrictions to be brought in to stop HGVs using the narrow road through their village.

The C13 runs parallel with the A350 between Shaftesbury and Blandford.

Dorset County Council brought in an advisory route in June for HGVs, which encourages them to use the A350 northbound and the C13 southbound.

But Melbury Abbas residents say they are using the C13 Dinah's Hollow both ways and regularly meet and get stuck.

This video was filmed on 13 April.
