Whitstable: Harbour Street roadworks will be complete in time for Oyster Festival

Roadworks blocking the pavement on one of Whitstable's busiest roads will be removed in time for the Oyster Festival this weekend, engineers say.

Workers from UK Power Networks started fixing an underground electricity cable on Tuesday.

They say the work, which is blocking the path close to the Victoria Street car park, should be finished before thousands of visitors arrive in the town this weekend.
