Have your say

A traffic lights failure cause major rush-hour delays at a busy junction in Portsmouth today.

The snag hit all the lights at the Marriott junction at North Harbour.

Motorists edged forward to try to find a way through as drivers arriving from four directions jostled for position.

One driver said: ‘It was very scary. People were edging forward but no-one seemed sure what to do.’

Engineers fixed the lights at around 9am.
