Two killed on same stretch of A3 at Long Ditton

Two people have died in separate incidents on the same stretch of the A3 in Surrey.

A man jumped from a footbridge on Clayton Road, Long Ditton, onto the northbound side of the motorway at about 09:35 GMT.

Just after 10:00 GMT, on the opposite side of the carriageway, a motorcyclist was killed in a collision between a car and an ambulance.

The A3 is closed in both directions from Hook Junction to Esher Common.

The Highways Agency warned it was likely to remain closed into the evening's peak period.

Surrey Police has advised motorists to avoid the area as investigations into both incidents continue.
