Scorching temperatures have caused roadworks planned for today to be abandoned.
A project to improve the road surface was due to begin on Maidstone Road, Paddock Wood, but because of the hot weather Kent Highways has been forced to postpone the plans.
Improvements were expected to be carried out for two days between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

It is not yet known when the work will be rescheduled for.
