ONE of the main roads through the centre of Portsmouth has been closed by police.
Holbrook Road has been closed off between the roundabouts with Arundel Street and Somers Road North this morning, following a serious incident.
Images and video captured this morning show the scene of the incident.
Cars are currently being diverted by police via Arundel Street, or through the ASDA car park – with the help of staff – if they are heading towards Southsea.
This has led to major congestion through Fratton Road, and drivers are urged to avoid the area if at all possible.
The exact nature of the incident is currently unknown, but Hampshire Constabulary has been approached for comment by The News.
