ROADWORKS are taking place in Manningtree until the end of September.

Essex County Council has closed York Street and Oxford Street for excavation and reconstruction works of the walls by the River Stour.

It involves dismantling brickwork panels, excavating new foundation and rebuilding the wall.

The roads will be closed until September 27.

Until that date a diversion route has been set up along Regent Street, Brook Street, South Street and Stour Street.
