A busy main road is back open after being closed this morning due to flooding (Monday).

The A638 Doncaster Road in Ackworth is open in time for rush hour after it was closed between the Ackworth Moor Top roundabout and Royd Moor Lane junction.

Motorists had been advised to find alternative routes after heavy rain over the weekend caused flooding on the road near the Beverley Arms.

An Environment Agency flood alert was in place from Ackworth Moor Top to the River Don.

Wakefield Council said Doncaster Road was back open just after 3pm. The council tweeted: “Flood water pumped away so road now clear.”
