A dual carriageway closed for nearly a month since a sinkhole opened up underneath a slip road has reopened.

The northbound carriageway of the A249, near Sittingbourne in Kent, was shut on 11 January after a burst water main caused the 15ft (4.5m) hole to appear.

Highways England said it carried out final work to resurface the damaged road overnight on Thursday.

The northbound slip road at the Bobbing junction is expected to open on Saturday.
