EAST YORKS: The road at Spurn National Nature Reserve is due to be reopened today.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust staff decided to close the road for safety reasons over the weekend.
A combination of high tides and strong winds made the carriageway treacherous with sand and other debris deposited on the highway.
The reserve suffered similar problems towards the end of last year which caused damage to the road surface while the carriageway was also closed in April and June for the same reasons.
