AN EMERGENCY road closure is in place on the A338 near Kent Lane in Ibsley.

Hampshire County Council says this is due to a burst water main and damage to a gas main.

The road is closed in both directions.

The council says that South West Water and SGNgas are working on repairs.

A post on Twitter by the county council said that the road is "unlikely to reopen before the morning Saturday January 29"  and diversion routes are being set up.
