THERE are reports of heavy traffic on the A31 westbound causing congestion near Ringwood.

With another hot sunny day in store, it appears vistiors are heading to Dorset's beaches in their droves.

The situation on the A31 has been worsened with reports of a collision at the A338 Salisbury Road involving two vehicles.

Reports suggest vehicles are queuing back to Forest Corner, with slow moving traffic all the way through to the A338 Spur Road at Ashley Heath.
