Drivers crossing the border into Surrey this morning (Wednesday August 12) faced problems on the A3 as the Hindhead Tunnel was closed.

The tunnel was shut and there was queueing traffic in both directions.

A technical fault was given as the cause of the problem.

A diversion was in operation and there was congestion around the Haslemere and Chiddingfold area.

However, the problem has now been sorted and traffic is flowing freely.
