Annoyed drivers have vented their frustrations after a Hampshire town was 'gridlocked' during rushour. 

On Monday, November 6, drivers turned to Facebook after getting stuck in traffic in Romsey. 

One person warned: "Romsey has been gridlocked since earlier this am. If needing to be in Romsey .. please allow extra travel time for your journey today." 

Another person added that it took them an hour to get their children to school from North Baddesley. 

At the time of writing, midday, traffic remains slow in the town centre, with Google maps reporting delays of 22 minutes on the Romsey Bypass.
