Have your say

Portsmouth’s Eastern Road was closed this afternoon after a road sign became detached.

Portsmouth City Council’s roads team tweeted that the road had been shut northbound near to Anchorage Road.

It later added: ‘A road sign has become detached and is posing a risk to vehicles/pedestrians.’

A city council spokesman confirmed the road had been closed for emergency repairs to a road sign.

The road has now fully reopened.

It comes after the road was closed for four hours yesterday following a crash between a motorbike and a car.
