Lorry incidents cause heavy traffic

Two incidents involving lorries have caused congestion in a market town.

The eastbound slip road of the A31 in Ringwood, Hampshire, closed at around 09:09 BST on Tuesday because of a lorry fire, Hampshire & Isle of Wight Constabulary said.

The force said another lorry had crashed into a power cable on Southampton Road in an unrelated incident, closing the road between the junctions with Wessex Road and Broadshard Lane.

Drivers are being advised to avoid the area.
