Pub fire closes road

Pub fire closes road

The A41 south of Newport was closed between the Sheriffhlaes and Great Chatwell junctions due to a fire at the old Countess Arms pub in the early hours of this morning.

Traffic was being diverted via A518 to Donnington then A4640 back to the A5 or M54 .

The road was re-opened around 7:30am.
