Have your say

A POWER failure in the Hindhead Tunnel brought traffic to a standstill this evening on the A3.

The new tunnel was forced to close in both directions due to power cuts caused by severe weather, which have also affected Petersfield.

While the problem was fixed motorists were diverted via the A31.

The tunnel reopened at 8.55pm and traffic is now flowing freely.
