A landslide has forced the closure of the A606 between Ab Kettleby and the A46 junction.
At the time of going to press the stretch of road was still closed in both directions.
A Leicestershire County Council spokeswoman said: “The closure is required between the A46 at the A606 Melton Road junction to the Six Hills Road junction at Ab Kettleby. The road will be closed until further notice.”
During the closure the alternative route will be:- Six Hills Road (Ab Kettleby), Six Hills Lane (Broughton and Old Dalby), A6006 Paddy’s Lane (Broughton and Old Dalby), the A46 and vice versa.
