Drivers faced rush-hour problems in Gosberton Clough as engineers carried out emergency repairs on low-lying cables in the village.

Large vehicles were diverted away from Beck Bank after it was closed between the Clough Road and Parson Drive junction when a worried resident reported that overhead power cables were dangerously low, providing a potential traffic hazard.

Engineers from Western Power spent at least an hour on Thursday repairing lines but there was no disruption to residents’ power supply.

A Western Power spokeswoman said: “We received a call on Thursday that overhead power lines were hanging low in a certain area of Gosberton Clough and our engineers went out to get them back up to the right height.

“But there was no power cut in the area and none of our customers had their electricity turned off.”
