Have your say

A crash and a bus breakdown caused three-mile traffic tailbacks on the A27 today.

The double decker bus broke down at around the same spot as a car left the road on the westbound carriageway between Emsworth and Chichester.

The two incidents happened at around 7.10am, but police could not say whether they are related.

The female driver of a small silver car, which ended up in a ditch around 20m from the carriageway, has been taken to hospital with minor neck injuries.
