Police have reopened a Hampshire motorway after a man plunged from a bridge.

Officers shut the eastbound M27 between junctions five and seven shortly after midnight.

It came after Hampshire police received reports that a man had fallen from a bridge over the carriageway.

The man, who has not been named, died at the scene. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

A spokesman for Hampshire Police said the road would remain closed while their investigations into the incident continued.

It was eventually reopened by 10am. The spokesman added that no further details would be given about the incident.
