Two lanes have been shut on the A456 Hagley Road West, near Lightwoods Park in Bearwood.

The closure comes on the road heading into Birmingham, meaning only one lane is being used.

Severn Trent Water are on site doing emergency repairs, but the work is expected to take until Friday August 23 to complete.

Sandwell Council has warned about delays on this road during peak hours and have advised drivers to take alternative routes where possible.
