Have your say

LARGE letters have appeared on Southsea Common this morning – leaving people wondering about what their meaning.

They popped up overnight, at the Clarence Pier end of the Common near the children’s playpark.

They are printed with a hashtag - #Soclose2U – but no other clues about what they might be.

Callers have been ringing in to local radio and people on twitter have been speculating about what they might be – some suggestions include a marriage proposal, and a Gary Lineker crisps campaign.
