UPDATED: A 2-car road traffic collision has resulted in the closure of Blackwater Hollow for the second time today (Tuesday).
Emergency services are currently on scene at the junction of Blackwater Hollow and Blackwater Road (A3056), near to Radcliffe’s farm shop.
The road has been closed by Police and traffic is being diverted locally. Southern Vectis say their Route 3 buses will be diverting via Merstone until further notice.
It is the second time the stretch of road has been closed today – another 2-car crash near Rookley forced the closure of the road at lunchtime.

Although 3 people have been immobilised, they are not thought to have sustained any serious injury.
The road has now re-opened following recovery of the vehicles.
