TRAFFIC was at a standstill on roads between Bournemouth town centre and Westbourne on Thursday evening.

West Cliff Road and Alum Chine Road were particularly congested.

A lane closure on Alum Chine Road due to roadworks is behind the traffic issues.

Poole Hill and Poole Road were also jammed, as well as part of the Wessex Way between Bournemouth West roundabout and the LV= Roundabout.
