ONE lane has reopened on the approach to the Hindhead tunnel on the A3 after the road was closed because of a car fire.
The southbound carriageway was closed after a fire started in a BMW just after the tunnel exit on that side.
Emergency services are tackling the blaze.
The fire is now out but Highways England says that there is a problem with the barrier.
It tweeted: ‘The earlier vehicle fire has been extinguished, but there’s now a mechanical fault with one of the tunnel barriers. An engineer is on their way!’
