The A350 remains closed between Blandford Forum and Shaftesbury due to fallen power cables.
The road is shut in both directions between the A357 junction at Durweston and the A30 Christy’s Lane.
Earlier reports suggested some motorists had moved cables in order to drive under them. People are reminded to leave potentially dangerous cables alone.
We're hearing reports of people lifting fallen power cables on the A350 at Fontmell Magna to drive underneath!! Police are en-route.
