ENGINEERS have been alerted to a traffic light failure at a busy Christchurch junction this afternoon.

Lights are out at the junction of the A35 Barrack Road and the B3059 Stour Road.

A spokesman for Dorset County Council said: “We are aware that it will get worse as we reach peak traffic times so engineers are already on their way to the site.”

The council and police were told about the problem at 1.50pm.
