MOTORISTS are being warned of the possibility of delays on Saturday because of a long vehicle making its way across Hampshire and Sussex.

Officers from the roads policing unit and the Highways Agency will be escorting a 6.7 metre wide yacht between Southampton and Polegate.

A police spokesman said: ‘The yacht is being moved during the evening.

‘On the A27 between Lewes and Polegate between 9pm and 10pm there will be a rolling road block because of its size.’
