Traffic on the A417 Air Balloon roundabout will be held this morning as an abnormal load passes through the Cotswolds.

Gloucestershire police will be escorting a Boeing aeroplane body through the county today.

It will be leaving Kemble airfield at around 9.30am before travelling along the A429 and A417 to Junction 11A of the M5.

Due to the size of the load, police say there is likely to be temporary disruptions to road users around the Crickley Hill roundabout as traffic will be held whilst this manoeuvre is undertaken.

Police would like to thank drivers in advance for their co-operation.
