A BROKEN-down vehicle and road works have caused long tailbacks for drivers on the A33 this morning.

The car broke down by the petrol station at Turgis Green, causing a 2.5-mile tailback to Sherfield-on-Loddon.

Repairs were taking place at the roadside.

A lane closure between the A339 ring road and Binfields Roundabout has also led to a 30-minute delay for drivers in Basingstoke.
