Drivers will be forced to take a lengthy diversion as a town's high street shuts for four nights.

From Monday (February 15) evening, High Street in Attleborough will be closed from Connaught Plain for 40 metres in the direction of London Road. 

The restriction will be in place overnight for four nights, from 7pm to 7.30am, until Friday morning. 

The closure is to allow Anglian Water to connect a new water supply on the road. 

Diversion routes of around five miles, or 10 minutes, are in place for drivers travelling in both directions.
