A reminder that The Tour of Britain cycle race – including Sir Bradley Wiggins – is in Worcester on Wednesday, September 10.

And anyone planning to attend the second day of Worcestershire's LV = CountyChampionship clash with Surrey and Kevin Pietersen at New Road on that day is advised to arrive early.

New Road will be inaccessible by car for approximately 45 minutes from 10.30am – the start time of play for Championship matches in September – and 11.15am.

But the pavements will also be more congested than normal as thousands of extra people are expected in the city to watch Wiggins and some of the world's other leading riders in action.

The Stage will set off from the Hive at 10.30 am via the out rider car with the riders leaving at 10.45am.
