Safety fears over East Yorkshire road diversion

People in an East Yorkshire town are claiming a traffic diversion is causing a danger as large lorries are sent down a narrow residential street.

Vehicles are being routed down Flatgate in Howden following the closure of the A614 last week when a sink hole opened up near a railway bridge.

One resident claimed that some drivers were using the footpath to get down the narrow road. East Riding of Yorkshire Council said it was trying to alleviate the problem.
