Villagers described roadworks, which closed part of Boxford this week for electrical work in Ellis street, as chaos for drivers.

A section of Ellis Street, near Sand Hill, is closed until Friday. The same area of road was closed off several weeks ago while cabling work was carried out.

Drivers were only able to access the village’s primary school via School Hill and Swan Street, causing a congestion around Stone Street Road.

One resident said: “Parents in cars were struggling to cope with the congestion, it was chaos. This is the second day in a row. On Monday a 4x4 pulling a horsebox couldn’t get through due to the volume of traffic.”
