UPDATED: Traffic light problems across Dorset now fixed

An IT outage at Dorset Council has been blamed for traffic light problems across the county yesterday.

The traffic lights rely on the council's IT system to communicate with each other, which they weren't able to do.

Dorset Council reverted to a default system instead.

The problems were caused by an outage of some IT systems.

A Dorset Council spokesperson said:

"The IT issue has now been resolved and all traffic lights should be working as normal."
