A car has demolished the road side fence, gate and barrier. A31 at Backley westbound carriageway by marker post 85. Free roaming livestock in the New Forest can now get onto the main road. We have removed gates from the near by pound to block the gap but urgent repair is required please. Red tape has been tied in a roadside tree to mark the spot. Photos will follow by separate email.
