Part of a busy coastal road is set to close for several weeks to enable demolition work to take place.

Hampshire County Council has given permission for Hill Head Road at Hill Head to be shut between its junctions with Cliff Road and Crofton Lane.

The road will be closed for 24 hours a day for up to four weeks from 7am to 5pm, starting on Monday, April 22.

According to the county council, the move will enable Turvey Construction to carry out demolition work "on or near the road".

No further details have been released but a spokesperson for Hall & Woodhouse said the closure was "unrelated" to the recent fire that destroyed the Osborne View Hotel.

More than 60 firefighters were called to Hill Head at around 2.30am on February 22 as flames engulfed the seafront watering hole.
