PART of the A3 in Purbrook was closed on Sunday night due to a blocked sewer.

Workers from Southern Water were called to the scene after a minor blockage caused a slight raise in the road, the water firm confirmed.

The road was closed after consultations between the water company and Hampshire County Council’s highways department.

Andrew Saqlade, spokesman for Southern Water, said: ‘It was important to try and release the blockage to release the pressure on the road.’
