Long queues built up on the northbound A3 today after an accident in the Hindhead Tunnel.

There were reports that a car had overturned in the tunnel shortly before 7am.

One lane on the northbound carriageway remained open as emergency services dealt with the incident.

But traffic is now flowing freely after the vehicle was moved at 9.30am. A spokesman for Highways England said it was a minor incident and the delays were no more than 10 minutes.
