THERE are very heavy delays on the roads after a collision blocked the Hindhead Tunnel northbound on the A3.

There are delays around Liphook and Petersfield, and further back, as the A3 was closed between A333 Milford and A283.

Surrey Police worked with fire crews to clear the scene and said the lane is just about to reopen. The following diversions are available for those not wanting to join the one-hour delays that remain: Road users are advised to exit the A3 at Griggs Green Interchange. Join Longmoor Road towards Liphook. At the Headley Road junction, turn left on to the B3004 and continue to Lindford.

Turn right at the B3002 junction and follow through Headley, Headley Down and into Grayshott. Continue to the junction with the A3, turn left and rejoin northbound. 

Surrey Police has been contacted about the nature of the incident.
