M27 closure causes long delays on local roads

There have been long delays on the M27 and surrounding roads because a stretch of the motorway is closed so a bridge can be demolished.

The motorway has been closed between junction 9 and 11 since 9pm on Friday and it's not due to re-open until 9pm this evening.

The North Fareham Footbridge is being knocked down as part of work to transform the road into a smart motorway.

Highways England say they have tried to pick the least busy weekend to carry out the work.
