MOTORISTS travelling in and out of Hampshire this morning face delays because of floods on the A27.

The eastbound route out of Chichester was closed off about an hour ago due to flooding.

Traffic from the east that’s trying to get into the area is also being held up.

National Express is not running any coach services to Chichester until further notice because of the weather.

Meanwhile, cars were held up coming out of Gosport earlier this morning because of water that had built up in Newgate Lane.
