Heavy overnight rain has led to problems with Larnaca’s road network and two roads have been closed, police said on Thursday.

A three metre deep hole has opened up on the old Nicosia-Limassol road near Chirokitia. Road signs have been erected and drivers are urged to be careful.

The coastal Kiti-Zygi road, from the junction with the road to Alaminos to Pentaschinos closed to traffic because of mud on the road surface for a few hours. Police said it reopened around noon.
