The route through Goudhurst, a village between Ashford and Tunbridge Wells, was first closed on Saturday night.

Traffic information provider Inrix said the closure had come after “a serious accident” on Saturday evening.

However, there are advance warning signs from UK Power Networks advising it is closed for two days from February 10.

The high street reopened this morning.
