A section of a large masonry wall has partially collapsed on Highlands Road, Runcorn.

Due to the risk that the remaining parts of the wall present to road users, the road is being closed to traffic this afternoon (Friday).

A diversion route is in place via Moughland Lane, Campbell Avenue and Park Road.

A safe corridor on the opposite side of the road is provided for pedestrians.

The duration of this temporary closure is not yet known.
