Motorway warning as Hampshire braces for strong winds
DRIVERS are this afternoon being warned to stay clear of large sections of one of Hampshire's busiest motorways as high winds are forecast for later this afternoon.
The Met Office has issued a yellow alert with forecasters predicting winds of up to 65 mph, starting from 4pm to 11pm along the most southern routes in the south west and south east.
Meanwhile road safety fears have prompted the Highways Agency to advise motorists to avoid the M27 between J8 hear Hedge End and J9 near Locks Heath - an exposed stretch which is vulnerable to bad weather.
Road users driving high-sided vehicles, riding motorcycles or towing any kind of trailer are being urged to check traffic and weather conditions before setting out on journeys.
They are also being advised to pay attention to signs indicated speed restrictions.
