A main Kettering town centre through route has been cordoned off by police tape this morning (Monday) and traffic diverted away from the scene.

The taped off section of Silver Street, close to the junction with School Lane, extends across one pavement and the width of the carriageway.

A single police officer, guarding the scene, has been advising shopkeepers whose premises fall within the cordon.
