MOTORISTS are facing long delays on the A31 in the New Forest this afternoon.

Delays of around 30 minutes are being reported at Cadnam.

According to real-time traffic update service Inrix, the delays are due to “holiday traffic” as people take to the roads over the Easter weekend.

Earlier today, there were delays on the A31 following a crash involving three vehicles on the westbound carriageway.

One lane had to be closed to allow for recovery.

There are also currently reports of delays on the A338 Wessex Way due to an accident.
