A road in Newport has been shut by emergency services on the Isle of Wight this evening (Tuesday) - but it's not for what you might think.

The Isle of Wight Ambulance Service is leading a training exercise involving other emergency teams.

It has been set up to test how they respond to a large-scale incident.

A spokesperson for the Isle of Wight NHS Trust said: "It will provide a realistic training experience for them and other agencies."

The exercise is being held at Betty Haunt Lane, Newport.

The road is currently closed and will remain so until 11pm.
