A large defect believed to have been caused by badgers has shut a road in a Suffolk village. 

Suffolk Highways installed an emergency closure along Flowton Road in Elmsett  on Wednesday afternoon. 

It followed reports of a "large defect" in the carriageway. 

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Highways said: "There is a large defect at the location that we believe may have been caused by badger activity however, further investigations are required."

The nearby The Street in Aldham remains closed after it collapsed in November.
