Rolling road closures will take place around the town centre for Nuneaton's Carnival. The annual event will take place in just over a week - Sunday, June 9.

There will be a rolling road block in place as the procession makes its way through streets in Attleborough, around the edge of the town centre and back up towards Caldwell. Motorists are being warned that this will be in place from 11am until 5pm.

This year, in what is a huge change to the event, the procession will begin at noon. This is instead of the traditional 1pm time.
