Stranded drivers throw birthday party on A3!

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 1:49pm 15th February 2018.

Drivers who have been stuck on the A3 for over two hours have decided to throw a birthday party!

The road was shut at Ripley after a crash involving five vehicles this morning.

Surrey Police say all trapped traffic has now been cleared but some drivers have "annoyingly" abandoned their vehicles. 

It's causing delays along the northbound stretch. 

Linda Williams is one of those stuck in the traffic and her family have thrown her a birthday party - her "first ever motorway party".

There is still queuing traffic and long delays in the area. 

Two children and a woman have been taken to hospital, although it is believed the children are not injured.

One other woman was treated at the scene, but did not need to go to hospital.

Surrey Police say drivers must leave the road at Ripley. 

They are being advised to follow the diversion route via the A2215 and to rejoin at Ockham.
