Earlier this year, the government announced work on the £400,000 scheme would start in Autumn 2018 and should be complete by the following spring.

It followed a long campaign by local residents and motorists who had complained about frequent accidents on the roundabout and congestion at peak times.

Matt Hancock said: "Fiveways is notorious to the thousands of people who use the roundabout every day - it is dangerous, confusing, and very often congested and gridlocked."

We'll report back on the meeting tomorrow.
