Have your say

Workmen have started repairs to the Sails of the South.

Portsmouth City Council leader Donna Jones tweeted this picture as the patch-up to the storm damaged structure began yesterday.

Repairs to the 43m structure, located in the central reservation of the M275, we delayed because parts had to be ordered from France and permission had to be sought from the Highways Agency to carry out repairs on the motorway.

Money for the repairs has come from a fund set aside for maintenance of the sails.
