A road closure in Stamford has caused confusion due to a number of diversion signs being placed around the town.

Red Lion Street has been closed since Monday due to scaffolding work currently taking place outside The Periwig.

Diversions are in place around Stamford, directing traffic via St John’s Street, St Mary’s Street, St Mary’s Hill, Wharf Road and Brazenose Lane. But the diversions have confused drivers, with some avoiding Broad Street as a result.

Although the road is closed, businesses in Red Lion Street and in the surrounding area are still open for business.

The road is expected to be closed until October 17.
