A footpath in east Ipswich has been temporarily closed due to the danger of falling masonry.

The pathway between St Helen's Street and Woodbridge Road, which includes a side entrance to St Helen's Primary School, has been sealed with barriers off by Suffolk Highways.

In a Twitter post, Suffolk Highways has revealed the closure is due to masonry falling from near the church.

It is not clear how long the closure will be in place for.

Suffolk Highways said on Twitter: "For the safety of all, please do not remove the barriers or access the footpath until repairs are complete."
