There are delays around Chichester this morning after reports of swans in the road.

Traffic is extremely heavy westbound on the A27 approaching the Portfield Roundabout from Tangmere and it is understood that’s because swans were spotted crossing the busy road.

Motorists were left bemused as to what was causing the hold ups with no obvious sign of any accidents but police in the area investigating.

Congestion has also been reported coming towards Chichester from Havant this morning.
