'Major upgrade' planned for M3 junction

M3 junction 9
Highways England

Plans for a major change to a junction of the M3 near Winchester have been revealed.

The work, planned for two years from 2021, would allow some drivers to avoid using the roundabout at junction 9, where the motorway meets the A34.

The roundabout will also be redesigned to increase capacity, Highways England said.

The plans have been released as part of a public consultation which lasts until 19 February.

BreakingParachute trial: husband was in 'dire financial situation'

An Army sergeant accused of tampering with his wife's parachute in a botched plot to kill her has told a court he was in a dire financial situation throughout their relationship.

Emile Cilliers, of the Royal Army Physical Training Corps, said he owed wife Victoria several thousand pounds during their courtship, and repeatedly borrowed cash from various sources to pay off existing loans.

Parachute husband said he would 'never, ever, ever' harm his wife

Statements given to police by Emile Cilliers - the man accused of attempting to kill his wife by tampering with her parachute - have been read out in court today.

Mr Cilliers told police last year that he "would never, ever, ever try to harm his wife or children."

Victoria Cilliers' disastrous parachute jump, when she fell 4,000 feet and suffered multiple injuries after her parachute failed to open, happened in April 2015.

Her husband, who had been having an affair with another woman leading up to the incident, has also been accused of attempted murder by tampering with a gas fixture in their home.

He denies all charges. The trial continues.

Two men have been charged with negligence following the deaths of three soldiers during an SAS selection march in the Brecon Beacons.

L/Cpl Edward Maher, from Winchester, L/Cpl Craig Roberts, from Conway, and Cpl James Dunsby, from Bath, were taking part in a 16-mile recruitment exercise on the hottest day of 2013.

A coroner ruled they died from neglect. The Service Prosecution Authority confirmed charges have been brought against two soldiers involved at the time.

The case will be heard in a military court and the maximum sentence is two years.

Fraudsters con three elderly people out of £25,000

Three elderly people from Hampshire handed over a total of £25,000 in a single week to fraudsters claiming to be police officers.

The victims, in Itchen Abbas, Waltham Chase and Colden Common, were telephoned by fake officers who told them they were investigating fraudulent activity on their accounts.

They were asked to withdraw cash and check the serial numbers of the notes before being told some of the money was counterfeit and a courier would be sent to collect it.

Police fear there may be more victims who are yet to report the scam.

A34 safety review: 'Driver behaviour' contributing to crashes

A series of measures to improve safety on a road where several high-profile crashes have taken place have been proposed.

The government ordered the review of the A34 after concerns were raised about its safety.

A Highways England review lists 16 potential improvements, including enhanced road markings.

But it also suggests driver behaviour was a "significant contributing factor" in the majority of collisions.

The 62-mile route between Hampshire and Oxfordshire has come under increasing scrutiny, particularly along the stretch between the M4 and M40.
