AN ELECTRICITY pole was snapped in half and nearby pylons damaged after a car crash.

The incident happened on Winchester Hill between Halterworth Lane and Braishfield Road, both in Romsey.

More than eight workers from SSE are on site attempting to fix the damage, which includes a snapped electricity pole.

An electricity box was also left hanging off a nearby pylon.

The A3090 is closed off in both directions near the Hunters Inn.

Experts are suggesting the repairs could take ‘most of the day’.
