As the disabled Coach is pictured sitting on a central slip road leaving the main carriageways in both directions completely clear it is difficult to see how this situation is causing any more then a very minor inconvenience. Slow traffic or slow News day?

If you know the junction you will see that the coach is in the right hand turn lane for traffic coming from Christchurch to access the A338 towards the Cooper Dean. As this lane is blocked any traffic wishing to turn right has to wait in the left, ahead Lane, blocking that lane for traffic wishing to go straight ahead towards Hurn.
A little more than a minor inconvenience wouldn't you say ?

In the context of a newsworthy, dramatic, sensational or life threatening situation, yes - a minor inconvenience.
