Have your say

The A3 southbound carriageway has been reopened after being shut for much of Boxing Day morning.

The road was shut this morning between the B2070 junction at Buriton and the B2149 Havant Road junction at Horndean.

Traffic was diverted through Finchdean and Rowlands Castle while gritters treated the road.

Delays were kept to a minimum due to there being little traffic on the roads.
