The A6 in Ashwood Dale has been cordoned off this morning to save motorists from driving into dangling electrical cable.

The stretch of Bakewell Road, starting from the Morrisons roundabout in Buxton, was already closed by police due to a tree falling down and knocking a telegraph pole over near Bakewell overnight.

The earlier obstacles were cleared by 10am but the street remains blockaded following reports of the drooping overhead wires. Derbyshire Police confirmed the council was awaiting assistance from BT.
