A closure of the A64 planned for this weekend has been cancelled due to the expected bad weather.

The Highways Agency had expected to close the road between Knapton and Sherburn as part of its road maintenance programme.

However, due to a forecast of extreme low temperatures and heavy winds, highways officials have now decided to postpone the work until a later date.

The work has been provisionally rescheduled for the weekend of February 1.
