UPDATE: Two incidents add to A27 congestion misery

Two incidents within close proximity along the A27 added to congestion on the roads this evening and part of the road was flooded as rain and snow continued to fall.

A vehicle broke down in Patching, blocking the A27 near the A280 junction, causing traffic to move slowly westbound, according to reports.

However, the road has now been re-opened.
