DRIVERS have been warned to drive with extra caution this morning because of dense fog circling the area.

Travel on the Solent is also currently affected because of the weather conditions.

Romanse, the county’s traffic update system, said on Twitter: ‘Lights on, increase braking distance. Turn off fog lights when visibility improves. Be safe!’

West Sussex County Council’s road team also advised using lights and driving at a slower speed than normal.

Hovertravel said Portsmouth-Ryde hovercraft crossings were taking a little longer than normal because of fog reducing visibility, but the company is still operating its winter timetable.

Wightlink ferry services from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight were running but with delays.
