Drivers are being warned as a road near two Suffolk schools will be closed for three days. 

Wells Hall Road in Great Cornard, near Sudbury, will be closed from Tuesday, April 2 until Thursday, April 4 while Anglian Water carries out essential work. 

Thomas Gainsborough School and Wells Hall Primary School are located down the road. 

The road will be closed near to the Black House Lane turn-off so the schools will still be accessed from Head Lane. 

A short diversion route will be in place while the road is closed. 

Drivers are being urged to plan around the roadworks and to allow for extra time on their journeys.
