DRIVERS are being urged to plan their journeys in advance as road closures are now in place in Middlesbrough for the Radio One Big Weekend event.

The A172 Stokesley Road between Memorial Drive and Ladgate Lane will be closed, as will the B1380 Ladgate Lane, between Parkside and Marton Road.

Clearways - sections of road where stopping or parking is prohibited - will also be in place in a large area around Stewart Park.
